A guide to SolidWorks Simulation and Finite Element Analysis

#10 SolidWorks Simulation Basic Video Tutorial

Below is a short video on how to set-up a simple study in SolidWorks Simulation, which quickly recaps the previous posts up to this point; activating the SolidWorks simulation add-in, creating a new study, working through the simulation tree from fixtures to meshing and finally running the simulation and looking at result plots.

Note that the above video only shows how to set-up a very simple study using very basic default settings, in later posts we will look into the different types of fixtures and external loads and so on, and also look at adjusting the simulation settings and properties.
