In the Dassault Systemes family, we have free student software tools – no matter what your grade level. You may use SOLIDWORKS or you have no software experience. You may be an engineer or an artist. You may attend university... Continued
From SOLIDWORKS, save an assembly to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Launch the Mechanical Scenario Creation App with the Abaqus solver to create two virtual bolt connectors with nuts. Create a Surface-Based contact. Surface-Based contact defines the interaction behavior between two discrete surface regions in the model.... Continued
Rich Wells, Harding University, Searcy, Arkansas, USA is teaching design, engineering and analysis courses to his students. His students are using SOLIDWORKS. But early this summer, Rich and three of his colleagues put together the “Robots and Rockets” Summer Camp... Continued
Learn the proper workflow to upload a SOLIDWORKS part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and perform a Simulation study using the Structural Model Creation App. Create a Finite Element Model (FEM) from the Sheet Metal part. Apply boundary conditions and load. Create 3 Simulation contour plots.... Continued
Educators and students have been teaching and learning SOLIDWORKS for over 25 years. The SOLIDWORKS Education Edition gives students the tools to engineer, simulate, document and visualize their designs. As SOLIDWORKS has changed, so too has education. There are more... Continued
In the previous lesson, we created a linear structural simulation study using SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation technology. Now modify the study and create new Simulation contour plots. Review the plots to interpret the results for Von Mises Stress, Factor of Safety, Reaction Force and Displacement.... Continued
Why do I teach my first year engineering students about simple stress analysis using 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation? I want them to get excited about their more advanced classes over the next 4 years. Learning the theory to derive complex formulas to understand the variables is essential, but getting early exposure to simulation software, brings theory to reality with instant visualizations and what-ifs. This shows the students the potential of using simulation in the real world. In this lesson, learn the proper workflow to upload a SOLIDWORKS part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and perform a Static Linear Simulation study using the Abaqus solver.... Continued
Why do I teach my freshmen about simple stress analysis using 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation? I want them to get excited about their advanced classes over the next 4 years.
Learning the theory to derive complex formulas to understand the variables is essential, but getting early exposure to simulation software, brings theory to reality with instant visualizations and what-ifs. This shows the students the potential of using simulation in the real world. Begin with a SOLIDWORKS model and explore 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation workflow for a structural domain.
For over 20 years, SOLIDWORKS has sponsored student teams that partipate in regional, national and international competitions. We have walked the fields, paddocks and pits, in all kinds of weather, to talk to students. The SOLIDWORKS Edu team and our... Continued
Robonation’s RoboBoat 2023 Competition, an international event that tests students skills and ingenuity above and below the water, took place last week in Sarasota, Florida USA. RoboBoat is an international competition where students design, build, and compete with self-driving robotic boats, known as ASVs,... Continued
Hanen Bdioui is a Mechatronics Engineer, SOLIDWORKS Champion, and first 3DEXPERIENCE EDU Champion from Tunisia. Last month, she won 1st place of SOLIDWORKS Cloud Challenge Model Mania in 2023. Hanen is also a 3DEXPERIENCE Content Creator and 3DS advocate. I... Continued
Do you like planes? Do you like to fly? We wanted to share with the SOLIDWORKS community the results of talented engineering students from around the world. This past weekend, the best in aerospace, mechanical, systems and design students gathered... Continued
The 4Bar Linkage provides students a first look at mechanisms, before applying an analytical solution, with easy to understand Joints in the Kinematics player. The Physical Products (components) can be used between many apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.... Continued
Aligned with DASSAULT SYSTEMES goals of diversity and sustainability, Aakruti 2022, India’s nationwide product design contest, presented the best in innovation and technology. Students developed innovative solutions to solve both technological and social problems – aligned to the United Nations... Continued
