SOLIDWORKS CAD software, with over 1.2millions licenses sold to date, is without a doubt the most used 3D CAD software in the world. You only need to search on job websites, Google Trends or even YouTube to see how much it is being used. However, over the last few years, SOLIDWORKS Corporation has a lot more strings to its bow.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation (formerly known as CosmosWorks) has been around a long time now, and is a well established, well proven suite of tools. It really add value to a lot of different industry sectors by allowing you to be sure you have the best design, early on in the design process. It can also drastically reduce the cost of your product development by reducing prototyping, reducing physical testing and also down to potential failures.
Simulation, stress analysis or FEA, whatever you want to call it, is often seen as something which is very high-end and only the complex high technology industries and products use it. With SOLIDWORKS Simulation, with the same intuitive, logical interface as SOLIDWORKS, and with no need to export files to another system, many more people can access this technology. SOLIDWORKS Simulation can really help you to gain a competitve edge. To see more, contact us to discuss which area of SOLIDWORKS Simulation can add value to your business or process.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation is not just about "is my design strong enough?" it can go much further. It can help reduce manufacturing costs, reduce material cost, reduce weight, improve performance or even reduce the environmental impact of your design. To go through all of the capabilities would take a very long time so instead, here is a video which goes through a lot of the functionality in under 3 minutes!
