Motion Optimization

You can create a SolidWorks Simulation design study to optimize motion studies features.
  • From the Parameters dialog box you can create and link variables to features from Motion Analysis type studies.
  • In a design study, you can specify constraints and goals that are linked to motion study results through sensors. You can perform an optimization or evaluate specific design scenarios.
  • For each design iteration, you can view the motion animation within the design study. For any iteration of the design study, you can view detailed motion results in the motion study.
