Displaying Beam Results in eDrawings

You can save beam results on actual beam geometry and display them in eDrawings as they appear in SolidWorks Simulation. Previously, beam results displayed on cylinders in eDrawings.

To save beam results on actual beam geometry and display them in eDrawings:

  1. Create the beam plots in SolidWorks Simulation.
  2. In the Simulation study tree, right-click Results and click Save All Plots as eDrawings.
  3. In the Save As dialog box, enter a Save in location and File name. Click Save.
  4. Open the file in eDrawings.
