Multiple Flow Result Plots in eDrawings for 2014

New for 2014 is the ability to save multiple result plots in one eDrawings file.  Previously, the result plots needed to be saved in individual eDrawings files.

To generate multiple result plots in one eDrawings file follow this procedure.

  • In SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, “Show” all the plots that you would like to be included in the eDrawings file.
  • Right Mouse Button on the “Results Folder” and select “Save Image”.

  •  Select “eDrawings” as the file format.

Once in eDrawings you can turn on or off the individual plots as needed to convey the content you wish to show.
