When the Force is Unknown, Then what?

When designing a product, displacement limits may yield a myriad of issues, especially when we are not given an initial force and our design needs to be optimized for our scenario. In SOLIDWORKS Simulation we can not only reach displacements and interpret the forces involved, but rather take our findings and use them to interpret multiple scenarios while using the same tool. By understanding our fixtures and the mathematics or a torque example, we can take our problems and convert them into simple kinematics so we can further understand our issues and get back to designing. Here we will demonstrate how we can better understand the forces involved in our designs create a few tools along the way.
