Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to an assembly and show two versions of its components. Also, explore the advanced options of configuration properties. Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to an assembly. Use the advanced options of the configuration properties to control new components and mates. Create two versions of the assembly to represent different available components.
Global variables declare a named value that dimensions can be set equal to or that can be used in equations. Equations are mathematical expressions that can define dimension values as well as relate dimensions to each other. Create global variables. Use global variables to set fillet features to be equal radii. Use global variables in equations. Use equations to control dimension values.
Create fillets and chamfers to modify geometry in a sketch. Set the size and options for the sketch fillets and sketch chamfers. Create fillets and chamfers in a sketch. Understand the options for creating sketch fillets and sketch chamfers.
Explore the various methods for moving and rotating components, including dragging, using the triad, and setting the options in the PropertyManager. Explore the options for detecting collisions between components. Calculate the minimum clearance distance between components. Move and rotate a component by dragging, using the triad, or using the options in the PropertyManager. Identify the clearance between options when moving components. Detect collisions between moving components and other components.
Introduction to the material nonlinearity, namely metal plasticity. Effect of mesh quality on the quality of the numerical stress results. Solve problem with linear small displacement solution and identify a need for the nonlinear solution due to high stress. Define nonlinear study boundary conditions and loads. Define nonlinear material model with von Mises plasticity. Use simplified bi-linear plasticity material model. Review the stress and displacement results at various times.

Introduction to the force control and displacement control methods in nonlinear module. Experience and resolve solution instabilities when solving nonlinear problems. Define nonlinear study boundary conditions and loads. Stabilize force control method to arrive to a final solution. Solve the problem using the displacement control method. Adjust boundary conditions for the displacement control method. Compare nonlinear results from the force control, and the displacement control methods.
Review the difference between small displacement linear, and large displacement nonlinear analyses. Introduce the concept of time curves, and discuss basic options. Solve small displacement linear analysis to demonstrate inaccurate solution. Define a nonlinear simulation study. Use time curves to control variation of the nonlinear loading. Use fixed increment stepping, and autostepping stepping procedures to solve the nonlinear problem. Postprocess results of the nonlinear simulation. Compare results from nonlinear studies with various setup parameters.
Convert imported assembly and multibody geometry into SOLIDWORKS feature-based, parametric models. Recognize imported assembly geometry as multiple parts. Use Edit Feature to recognize only selected features from the part. Use child features to recognize multiple features with a single selection.
Convert imported sheet metal part geometry into SOLIDWORKS feature-based, sheet metal, parametric models. Recognize common sheet metal features such as Base Flanges and Sketched Bends. Flatten the result to view the flat pattern. Use a hybrid approach combining the automatic and interactive methods.
Use Volume features to recognize geometry that does not match any other feature type. The volume feature can be replaced with a standard SOLIDWORKS feature. Recognize volume features. Recognize boss and cut revolve features. Use the Up To Face option with cut extrudes. Replace volume features with standard cut features. Edit the mapped features.
Control the conversion of imported part geometry into a SOLIDWORKS feature-based parametric model by converting specific features interactively. Interactively convert feature types. Convert features types that cannot be used with automated methods. Recognize multiple similar features at the same time. Re-recognize geometry and change it to a different type. Add patterns from the list of recognized features.
