Step Up From SimulationXpress for Advanced Design Insights

Many SOLIDWORKS users have discovered SimulationXpress to be a very easy-to-use, first-pass analysis tool to test their products and quickly generate reports to document results. While SimulationXpress can certainly help us understand the effects of forces and pressures on individual parts, there are many cases where a more advanced SOLIDWORKS Simulation package will allow us to gain better insight into the design. This can often help us make important design decisions that improve quality, increase performance, and reduce costs.

True Simulation Driven Design with solidThinking Inspire (Part 3)

In Part 2 of this blog series we looked at what goes into creating an optimization run by:

  • Starting with a motion study of our convertible top.
  • Automatically transferring loads data from the motion to the structural optimizations.
  • Applying shape controls and optimization variables to generate shapes based on our specific needs.

True Simulation Driven Design with solidThinking Inspire (Part 2)

In part 1 of our blog we covered the business value of driving our design with simulation. In this post it’s time to “get into the weeds” a bit. When setting up simulation studies and specifically optimization, we often think back to setting up proofs or “showing your work” in an exam. If you wanted any partial credit at all before you start trying to solve the problem you need to lay out your: “Givens, Assumptions and Unknowns”.

A few months back, we looked at a casting optimization design study we recently completed with our friends at Wisconsin Precision Casting. In that study we used our Click2Cast and Inspire simulation tools to investigate where the real costs for a foundry are and how we can eliminate them? Today I’d like to discuss Inspire in more detail and where it fits in the design process and look at some specific use case examples.
