Save Intermediate Topology Results

You can stop the analysis of a topology study before the final iteration completes and view intermediate results.

In a Topology study's progress dialog box, click Stop and Save Results before the solver completes the final iteration of the optimization.

The SOLIDWORKS Simulation software saves the results of the last running iteration. A warning message alerts you that the results may not be valid because the solver stopped before it reached convergence. You can view intermediate optimization results in a Material Mass Plot.

Material Mass plot of intermediate results (iteration 10). Material Mass plot of final converged results (iteration 19).
