Analyze Part Example (C#)

This example shows how to perform a static analysis of a part and plot nodal strain results.

NOTE: To get persistent reference identifiers (PIDs) for model selections, you can use pidcollector.exe or IModelDocExtension::GetPersistReference3.

//--------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Add the SOLIDWORKS Simulation as an add-in
//    (in SOLIDWORKS, click Tools > Add-ins > SOLIDWORKS Simulation).
// 2. Add the SOLIDWORKS Simulation primary interop assembly
//    (in the IDE's Project Explorer, right-click
//    the project name, click Add Reference, click the Browse tab,
//    navigate to install_dir\api\redist\CLR2,
//    click SolidWorks.Interop.cosworks.dll, and click OK).  
// 3. Modify the path to solidworks materials.sldmat as needed.
// 4. Ensure the specified part exists.
// 5. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1.  Adds a default static study results plot.
// 2.  Creates study Static-solid.
// 3.  Applies a material to the model.
// 4.  Applies restraints and pressure to the selected faces.
// 5.  Creates a mesh.
// 6.  Runs the analysis.
// 7.  Prints strain and stress results to the Immediate window.
// 8.  Creates a nodal equivalent strain plot of the results.
// 9.  Prints plot data to the Immediate window.
// 10. Hides fixture and force symbols. Examine the graphics area
//     to verify.
// 11. Press F5 to continue.
// 12. Shows fixture and force symbols. Examine the graphics area
//     to verify.
// 13. Inspect the plots.
//
// NOTE: Because this model is used elsewhere, do not save any changes.
