Simulation Standard

What is SOLIDWORKS
Simulation Standard?

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard gives product engineers an intuitive virtual testing environment for static linear, time-based motion, and high-cycle fatigue simulation, so they can answer common engineering challenges with this SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD embedded solution. The Trend Tracker capability and Design Insight plot enable designers to highlight optimal design changes while they work. Built on a concurrent engineering approach, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard helps engineers know if their product will perform properly and how long it will last.

Check out the full capabilities below.

Simulation Standard Features

PRODUCT TESTING

Test products made of weldments, sheet metal, and volume geometry with mixed mesh

FORCE SIMULATION

Apply bearing loads, forces, pressures, and torques

LOAD TESTING

Use connectors or virtual fasteners to model bolts, pins, springs, and bearings, and dimension them under applied loads

MOTION ANALYSIS

Define motion studies with a time-based approach for rigid body kinematic and dynamic problems

STRESS ANALYSIS

Evaluate strain and stresses between contacting parts, including friction

ACTIVE OPTIMISATION

Activate the Trend Tracker and Design Insight plots to highlight optimal design changes while you work

LOAD CONSTRAINTS

Evaluate characteristics like actuator force and joint loads for motion optimisation

FATIGUE ANALYSIS
