Now available from Solidtec Solutions- SolidWorks 3D CAD , SolidWorks Simulation design software allows products to be tested for defects before they are built, helping prevent errors early in the design process.
SolidWorks Simulation design testing software is powerful enough for trained FEA analysts, yet easy enough for product designers to use. It can even help in optimising designs for maximum performance and savings.
SolidWorks Simulation design testing software opens in the SolidWorks user interface, so there is no need to launch multiple applications. Designs can be subjected to the same conditions they will face in the real world, including stresses, impact, heat, airflow, and more, meaning there is no need to wait until a product has been manufactured to start testing, or go through multiple physical prototypes.
SolidWorks Simulation design testing software can be used to answer questions such as:
- will moving parts clash or interfere with one another?
- how much weight can a product carry?
- how much will a part deform under specific stresses?
- will heat and air circulate through the design properly?
- will it survive a fall?
Core Simulation capabilities are included with every license of SolidWorks Premium, and additional capabilities can be added as needed. Three upgrades are available: Simulation Professional, Simulation Premium, and Flow Simulation.
SolidWorks Simulation is included with SolidWorks Premium and includes the core tools that should be being used to test designs, whether the user is new to analysis or a seasoned professional.
SolidWorks Simulation Professional allows designers to take their design validation to the next level. Designs can be subject to real-world stresses, helping to shorten the prototype cycle and get products to market faster.
SolidWorks Simulation Premium brings highly-advanced finite element analysis (FEA) functions to designers and engineers at a fraction of high-end FEA software costs, and with none of the complexity.
SolidWorks Flow Simulation is the first and easiest fluid-flow simulation and thermal analysis program fully embedded within SolidWorks software.
SolidWorks SimulationXpress is a first-pass analysis tool that is included with every license of SolidWorks Standard and Professional. It gives designers the ability to do basic stress analysis on individual parts.
