Analysis Lesson 2: SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation Linear Structural Validation Part1

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.

3DEXPERIENCE Works Lesson #7: SOLIDWORKS with 3DPlay

3DPlay is the universal player and viewer on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, with access through your web broswer. Students can use 3DPlay to view 3D models, image files, PDFs, 2D drawings, Power point presentations, and assembly instruction files. For design reviews, 3DPlay provides the ability to explode and collapse components in the assembly while making hand or typed markups and measurements.
