Shell Meshing Made Easier with SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2014
Even after the hype of launch events has died down, we’re still spotting little nuggets of improvement that SOLIDWORKS have put into their latest release.
 
When using simulation to create a 2D shell mesh, it is now possible to “preview” the virtual thickness when picking which side of the component is used to define it. To see for yourself, choose “Define Shell By Selected Faces” from the simulation tree after creating a study…
 
Using the outside faces of this component to specify a shell, it now gives a preview of the virtual thickness….
 
 
 
Using the “offset” tool, I can make sure that it’s pointing the correct way before needing to mesh the model!
