Analyze Part Example (VBA)

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 type library as a reference
'    (in the IDE, click Tools > References > SOLIDWORKS
'    Simulation version type library).
' 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 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 the model is used elsewhere, do not save any changes.
