  • Product Details
    Compare and Optimize Alternatives. Determine the best design option by comparing strengths, life, cost, and weight. Perform all comparisons and design modifications within the SOLIDWORKS environment.

    Failure Prediction: Save the time and prototyping costs while creating safer, more durable products. Simulation predicts structural failure thresholds due to yielding, overheating, buckling, and fatigue.

    Simulate Drop Test or Impact. Save time and cost by reducing the number of physical tests.  Define drop height, surface, and orientation. Perform realistic collision simulation between parts or assemblies.
    Predict Buckling or Collapse. Virtually apply forces, pressure and gravity to your designs to determine maximum loads before buckling. You can study the effects of various materials as well as isotopic and orthotropic factors.
    Simulate Heating or Cooling. Thermal analysis capabilities make it easy to study the effect of heat on your designs. Simulate thermal boundary conditions, fluid flow, thermal-structural interactions, and radiation effects in high-temperature applications.
    Simulate Repeated Loading: Simulate, evaluate, and improve a part or assembly that has to stand up to daily use. Evaluate responses to varying speeds or frequencies, and estimate the design life of your entire product.

Webcast - Don't Skimp On Product Data Management - Learn Why

Product development processes are challenging enough, so why add poor data management to the list? The associated delays and costs add up. Product data management expert, Brian VanderPloeg, will show you how using SOLIDWORKS PDM can get your design data under control and improve the way your teams manage and collaborate on product development.
