I'm trying to optimize a holder for heavy steel tubes. See if it can handle the weight. now I've modeled a holder and the tube (as a remote mass) and runned the simulation. It occurred to me that it shows no stress at some places where you'd expect it to be. now I'm thinking that I did something wrong with the remote mass. does anyone know what might be wrong it the simulation?

I have this .3dm solid (closed polysurface). While exporting it to Solidworks in a .3dm file (Rhino 4.0) it is not well executed. It may seem quite simple, but I'm a new Solidwork student user and I don't know what to do.

I have taken the first CSWA exam already but if I can take more than that this year I would like to do as many as I can... You get to take either a CSWA or a CSWP exam, and then once you have passed the CSWP you can take one (1) CSWP advanced exam.

Hey Guys. I am new to this forum and I am standig in front ob a (in my opinion) big problem. I am currently working on a system to generate a certain part of our companies drawing number out of our folder cards and then just add a partnumber to the part itself to generate automatically our draw. nr. Therefor I made a template to generate automatically our normal folder structure including a completely feeded folder card.

I am currently working on a university assignment that involves doing a motion analysis on a Whitworth quick return mechanism that is used in a shaping machine, I have done mathematical analysis in order to obtain plots of the reciprocating rams displacement, velocity and acceleration, now I am looking to verify these results with a SolidWorks motion analysis study. I have created the simplified model pictured below and set up a motion analysis study in order to drive the system at a constant

Hello, im trying to do static simulation on a simplified model of an engine. After many hours spent trying to set everything up and failing again and again i finally understood that i need some help from more experienced users : Could you tell me what kind of connections and fixtures i need to make this model properly(realisticly) distribute applied pressure ?

I'm requiring the bounding box area to be in the custom/configuration specific property tab so I'm able to use it elsewhere later on. I'm only requiring this on a sheet metal parts so I can do some pricing up later on. Its frustrating as i can see the bounding box area in the cut list properties but don't know how to link it to the custom property tab.

It seems that if I create a block within a hole position sketch, any sketch points inside that block do not generate holes. I have to create line geometry to define hole positions in the block, and then add the points so they reside outside the blocks.

Is it a possibility to release a SOLIDWORKS standalone license with command prompt ? If that is the case then it should be a way to release it on every shutdown automatically e.g. with a .bat file ? That´s what I need.

If I apply a force on a certain known shape and material, from the displacement results on the static analysis, is it possible to find the stiffness of the material? (Assuming linear force-displacement relationship) Or is this a wrong method? stiffness of the construction is the force divided by the displacement

Draftsight At work I use Draftsight pro, so far with few problems, However at home I use the free version. Yesterday as I was at home using the free one I typed PU, which is the AutoCAD equivalent of 'Clean' (Purge), I still use quite a lot of Acad commands as I was brought up mainly with it before moving to DS.

I need some help setting up an FEA simulation. I have a tube with an internal edge that we want to simulate the stress on as it moves through a bending fixture with different edge radii. I have tried to do this using the motion works, but the tube just pierces the fixture. The the most success I have had is using a static FEA with an applied for to the force to the tip and a fixed proximal end.

I could not see the evaluate option in part file, how can i fix it. PFA screenshot for your reference. Not sure what version of SW you have but on mine I can just click on Customize CommandManager & all the tabs will appear, the non-selected ones are in a reddy colour.
