SolidWorks Tutorial: Sustainability Material Choice and Sustainable Redesign

Mug

The SolidWorks Sustainability – An Introduction to Material Choice and Sustainability Redesign is a compact introduction to the engineering design process that incorporates material selection, stress analysis and thermal analysis.  Your students will edit an assembly and explore how different materials can effect the environment.  This is a great example to show the engineering student how to combine sustainable design with heat tranfer and applied forces.   Requires SolidWorks Education Edition or SolidWorks Student Edition Academic Year 2010-2011.  To access SolidWorks Simulation, select Tools, Add Ins.  Check SolidWorks Simulation.  SolidWorks Simulation is required for Stress Analysis and Thermal Analysis of an assembly.  Once I completed the assembly, I used Photoview 360  – drag and drop a blue background.  Marie

    What an amazing amount of sustainability breakdown is in that PDF. Sometimes you never realize what it takes to do something that you would normally think is pretty easy. Well done and it was educational to me.
