Explore Simulation-Driven Design

Designing products for real-world applications, big and small, requires testing and validation. With 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS you can design, simulate, adjust, and validate all on one platform. Want to learn how? On Monday, October 5, tune in to Exploring 3DEXPEREINCE WORKS Live and discover how 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS combines SOLIDWORKS and SIMULIA…Read More

Introducing Fluid Dynamics Engineer

Liquid and gas flows can have profound effects on the performance of designs. The earlier you can understand these effects, the better you can adapt your design to either mitigate or enhance them. For many industries, design is all about maximizing efficient fluid flow for cooling or processing, for others…Read More

Intro to Metal Forming Simulation with an Explicit Solver

The 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS® Simulation portfolio includes the ability to simulate the metal-forming process. The products can be leveraged on SOLIDWORKS® models when connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Forming processes may include stamping, punch stretching, forging, drawing, and more. Truth be told, simulating forming processes can be a difficult task. Usually…Read More

How to Improve SOLIDWORKS Designs Even More with Structural FEA

The 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS Simulation portfolio provides a comprehensive structural analysis solution for evaluating how your product may behave in real life. Optimize your product to increase its performance or use simulation for guiding engineering decisions throughout the design process—all while saving the time and expense of building prototypes. To participate…Read More

Guided Simulation with Structural Performance Engineer

For new users, setting up simulations can require a bit of a learning curve. For more experienced users, knowing when all required steps have been successfully completed can help ensure a simulation is ready to be solved, thereby increasing efficiency. The Structural Performance Engineer role (part of the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS…Read More

How SIMULIAworks Can Benefit SOLIDWORKS Users

SIMULIAworks was announced at 3DEXPERIENCE World earlier this year. It provides comprehensive and robust simulation capabilities for three roles for SOLIDWORKS® users on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. Here’s what you can expect. The initial offering is focusing on structural simulations from basic stress analysis to advanced nonlinear analysis (impact and drop…Read More

Improving Productivity with Simulation

Last week, we wrapped up the simulation webinar series. The webinar topic was on Topology Optimization displaying the technology available on SOLIDWORKS Simulation Desktop as well as showing a collaborative workflow with the cloud-based solutions for subdivision modeling (Sub-D) as well as for design guidance! All in the context of…Read More

Join Us for SOLIDWORKS Live to Hear about 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Offers

On Thursday, July 16th @ 11AM EST we will be hosting an exciting SOLIDWORKS Live event to introduce 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS. This new set of design-focused solutions will enable design teams to collaborate with key stakeholders in real time so they can quickly gain the insight needed to get innovative products…Read More

Make Simulation Work for You with SIMULIAworks on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Simulation software can require powerful, costly hardware. When working remotely or sheltering in place, you may not have access to your normal desktop set-up, or have the ability to communicate with your teammates as you would at the office. What is an engineer to do? The answer is simple: use…Read More

Bridging the Gap Between Designers and Analysts

Simulation has always been the holy grail of engineering. In the early days, simulation was restricted to engineers with specific levels of education and experience. This often meant that designers would have to wait days, weeks, and sometimes months to get back simulation results for their CAD designs. Seeing the…Read More

Mike Patey: SIMULIAworks is “the Coolest Software Ever.” Here’s Why

I think it’s true that many of us have a ‘dream job’ or ‘dream career.’ For some of us, it’s the place where our thoughts go when we’re daydreaming. For others, it’s an active pursuit. And, of course, some of us already have that ‘dream job’ or ‘dream career’ I’ve…Read More
