solidworks simulation tutorial


Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

first we create our model using a sketch and a solidworks extrude

Solidworks simulationXpress performs in six below steps which we are going to do step by step:

  1. Fixtures
  2. Loads
  3. Material
  4. Run
  5. Results
  6. Optimize

Now we can run simulation. It will take some seconds for solidworks to calculate then our wrench will start to move like an animation. If you are satisfied with part deformation you can click the “yes continue” button to see the results. Now you can check the results on the feature manager design tree. For example double click the stress to see the analysis results on the screen:

Or click displacement to see the movement analysis of the part

Take your time and examine the results for a while to see how this tool works. When you done with the results you can click “done viewing results” to go to the next tab. At the final step you can generate a HTML report or edrawing file from your simulation analysis:

Click next. Here you can optimize your process which for now we don’t want to.

That’s it.now you can analysis more complicated parts by this tool in your future works.
