SOLIDWORKS and SIMULATION: Together in Education with MODSIM eBike Series

SOLIDWORKS desktop in education is now connected to advanced simulation with SIMULIA Technology through the 3DEXPERIENCE Engineer offer.  Our new engineering simulation portfolio of products allows educators to cover structural mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, multibody dynamics and electromagnetic field simulation for a true Multiphysics approach.


With the 3DEXPERIENCE Works eBike Modeling and Simulation (MOD-SIM) series, my colleagues, Greg and Ronit,  present how to use this new technology from SOLIDWORKS to advanced simulation apps, Structural Mechanics, Durability and Electromagnetics analysis.

In this session, “How to Build Models for Multi-Disciplinary Simulations?” Greg takes you through copying geometry from SOLIDWORKS in order to keep the original geometry connected for updates in the future.  He shares many other great tips.



These sessions are free but you must register.  You can also download the model files to review the setup, mesh, boundary conditions, loads and more from this web page.



I have been using SOLIDWORKS Simulation since it’s start with COSMOS.  It is easy to use, teach and works for many situations.

With SIMULIA Technology, you can do more with your students and introduce them to the MOD-SIM approach and collaboration of information.   All model and simulation information is stored on the platform.  Gone are the errors in naming conventions – Simulation1, Study 2, Study 3  the last one – really.


Next month, the team answers the question, “How Strong is the Frame?”   You will be able to download the Frame part and follow along with the instructional video too.  Stay tuned.


Design well,  Marie
