Getting Started with 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation #6 – Webinar: Where Do I Place a GPS Tracker on an E-bike?

Thanks to everyone who attended the sixth live webinar in our series, Getting Started with 3DEXPERIENCE® Works: Where Do I Place a GPS Tracker on an E-bike? We appreciate your participation. Please keep the feedback coming as it is the best way for us to tailor these events to provide maximum benefit to you, our valued SOLIDWORKS® and 3DEXPERIENCE Works users worldwide.

Better Together

Utilizing SOLIDWORKS with 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation can help advance significant enhancement of the design and simulation of parts and assemblies. As you may already know, SOLIDWORKS enables you to create detailed and accurate models. 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation can analyze real-world electromagnetic interactions on your SOLIDWORKS projects, which is demonstrated in the webinar on a model of an e-bike with the challenge of finding the optimal location for the GPS tracker.

This design and simulation combination (MODSIM) enables early detection of design flaws and potential product failures. When leveraged together, SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation support iterative design improvements from the earliest stages of design. Integrating 3D CAD and FEA technologies is a comprehensive, cost-effective, and efficient approach to preventing downstream manufacturing issues and producing reliable, high-quality deliverables that meet or exceed specifications.

Furthermore, because the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is cloud-based, collaboration with team members, including suppliers and customers, is simplified. Decision-making is streamlined as all stakeholders can participate in the process. Once on the platform, your team can access SOLIDWORKS files from the office, at home, or anywhere with an internet connection. You can also easily share your designs with others in real time with a web-based viewer—no CAD or simulation software required.

The Increasing Importance of Electromagnetic Simulation

We are constantly exposed to electromagnetic fields that emanate not only from satellites, radio antennas, power lines, wireless gadgets, and cell phones but also from the natural world. Lightning strikes, the northern lights, and even the Earth’s magnetic field are manifestations of electromagnetic forces.

A multitude of modern industries, including consumer electronics, telecommunications, healthcare, industrial automation, aerospace and defense, and more, need to fully understand and navigate electromagnetism to optimize their products. Any device that taps into, produces, or interacts with electricity leverages, or is influenced by, electromagnetic energy.

Therefore, the role of electromagnetic simulations has become increasingly vital. Conducting simulation on your SOLIDWORKS designs ensures that individual components function optimally and harmoniously integrate into larger assemblies. We hope the webinar will help you understand the growing importance of electromagnetic simulation.

Reduce Risks

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) may occur when an electronic device is exposed to an electromagnetic (EM) field. Any device that has electronic circuitry is susceptible to EMI. With the ever-increasing use of the electromagnetic spectrum and more complex and sophisticated electronic devices, EMI issues are becoming more prevalent.

Testing electromagnetic interactions enables you to mitigate critical risks during the design process. Simulation enables testing of components under a variety of conditions in a virtual environment before they’re manufactured. This approach prevents potential manufacturing errors, saves time and costs associated with physical testing, and fosters a more iterative design process.

Moreover, 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation enables you to meet regulatory standards, improve product reliability, and even determine when product maintenance may be required.
