SOLIDWORKS Quick Tip - Pinned-End Support (BEAM Elements)

Learn how to simulate a "pinned-end" on a BEAM element mesh joint. This is an emulation of a typical "simply-supported" beam you might see in a text. The method uses the "Use Reference Geometry" panel in Fixtures, to show the six degrees of freedom on BEAM joints in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.
