SOLIDWORKS Simulation Tips and Tricks Webinar
This webinar takes around 45 minutes to go over SOLIDWORKS Simulation Tips and Tricks for new users and experts. Main tips included setting up your simulation template, getting a material modulus to get started with studies, using the "sliding hinge" fixture, modeling loads instead of simply applying them, bonding to connect things vs. bolt connectors, curvature based meshing as the default, and energy norm error plots. There are also many small tips and tricks sprinkled in. If you pay close attention, maybe you can catch them all and find a few that you might want to try out for yourself!
