Analysis in SolidWorks Simulation

You can:

  • Specify different element sizes in different areas (mesh control) of the model. With this feature, you can specify smaller element sizes at important locations of your model to improve the accuracy of the results.
  • Choose from two different solvers to analyze different types and sizes of problems more efficiently.
  • Import loads from SolidWorks Motion without having to specify fixtures.
  • Use adaptive methods to automatically improve the accuracy of the solution for stress analysis.
