Have you recently broken your new phone by sitting on it accidently? SOLIDWORKS Simulation can help prevent design flaws by stress testing components in a virtual environment to prevent the costly process of trying to correct faults after manufacture.
Bendy Phone

Sitting on your phone isn’t a good idea.  But if you did, you’d hope it would survive the impact!  

SOLIDWORKS Simulation can help prevent design flaws by stress testing components in a virtual environment to prevent the costly process of trying to correct faults after manufacture.

Applying a bend load to simulate someone sitting one your phone can be done easily in SOLIDWORKS. In the video below you can see how applying the load is able to permanently bend the phone out of shape after it’s been sat on!

 

From looking at this you’d then be able to re-design the part many times to make it strong enough for the job.  So you can be more confident that the product won’t break before giving the go-ahead!
