I have a very simple sheetmetal part, but I could not create mesh. I tried all the highlighted parameters but does not help. Please see the attached pictures and part file.

The scissor lift raises very fast for the first half then very slow on the last half. I need the platform on top to raise at an even speed the duration of the animation. Any suggestions would be amazing!

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 want to know that two blocks are fully mounted together (or two pipes) without any welding or connections only by squeezing them into each other, how can I find via solidworks the right force to do this? Just figure out the acceleration, then you will know the forces needed to resist it.

What does it indicate when the results of a static and nonlinear study are different when everything else is identical? I was expecting the results to be the same or similar. If everything is identical, it would suggest that the problem is nonlinear.

Capture.PNGI would like to go up in integers of 5s, how would I change this in FloEFD In the surface plot, you can set the limits of the plot. If you click the button in the purple box, this opens up the limits of the plot.

Does solidworks need to have a drill for the pin/bolt or will it simulate the drill on its own? If I want to pin two rectangular parts together per say, I have to drill half circles in both parts and insert the pin? you cant drill half a circle?

I know that we can use Frequency Shift or Result Options – Selected Modes to eliminate the rigid body modes and get a Harmonic Frequency Response result to list values. I am afraid however that doing that to get a result captures nearly none of the inertia actually in the model.I think that we need a result where as the frequency approaches zero, the response becomes much greater in magnitude than at the higher frequencies. To me at any rate I think you need a better explanation of why you need

I've been messing around with connectors and foundation bolts in static simulation, and was wondering if there was another way to do something similar in random vibration? I know that obviously connectors aren't supported in linear dynamic, but I was wondering if you could just create "landing pads" for the bolt based on the pressure cone of the bolt (seen on page 19 here:http://prod.sandia.gov/techlib/access-control.cgi/2008/080371.pdf). In doing so, you would end up creating a split face on

I would like to solve this problem using beam element. Program is creating joints at arbitrary points. I would like it to create at center of tow circles. Is it possible?

I made this quick model to try something in motion studies. I have this bowl, and i have its axis constrained to front and right planes, and the bottom coincident to the top plane. I positioned the three balls above the bowl in the first animation frame. I have all of their materials set to plain carbon steel.

How can I connect two rectangular blocks per say? If I try to connect two parts that are not circular with pins, I get errors. My application is to connect two rectangular blocks with pins, do I have to have a drill in the parts for it to work? or does solidworks know that it should be drilled?

When studying a weldment or assembly is there a method to get deflection for a given component (beam) where the results are isolated from the deflections of the rest of the study? Displacement is a default result plot, but that result is cumulative. I would like to be able to see the deflection (flex) of a particular piece in the study relative to its relaxed state prior to being loaded. In the particular case that I am currently working on I have a 5 bar mechanism.

I am doing static structural analysis of a structure, and when i run the case, it shows massage that "solver failed" (refer image). so my question is what are the wrong things i am doing due to that it is showing this error.

This error keeps popping up every time I try and run a static simulation on a part. I have already updated all my components and tried changing the result file location. This hasn't happened with other parts that I have run. How can I fix this?

Solidworks Premium 2017 SP2.0 under Windows 7 SP1 -- In a linear static study two display anomalies started suddenly, and I can't get rid of them: 1) When I mesh the model, several parts disappear, only to re-appear when I hide the mesh. Here is a pair of images where the only change is between showing and hiding the mesh:

when defining shells in a static study, I will use the Flip shell top and bottom option to correctly align my shells. If I make any change to model, then return to the study tab and remesh the Flip shell top and bottom tick is unticked and it will cause havoc with my shell directions throughout my model.

I'm running several static studies on an assembly through SolidWorks Simulation. Is there any way to output the the max/min stresses for each component in the assembly? I know I can go into each study, hide other components and click to view max/min results for only visible parts. But is there any way to output this automatically into a text file, etc?
