We all want one thing from SOLIDWORKS Simulation — the truth! But sometimes the results can be misleading in areas of high stress. We often wonder is this high stress real? Or is it artificial or fake? There are ways to get to the bottom of this, but most approaches are tedious and require many subsequent runs of the simulation. Thanks to the SOLIDWORKS Hot Spot Diagnostics tool, you can uncover the truth in your simulations and more easily identify stress singularities versus stress concentrations.

Past SOLIDWORKS updates are the building blocks for all future improvements and feature additions. However, with all of the changes that are applied every year, it can be hard to remember and keep track of everything that has happened. What if there was a new feature you could be using right now, but it flew under your radar? To help with this, during our TriMech Tech Talks 2021 we provided a little refresher with four on-demand webinars focused on the progress and upgrades of previous SOLIDWORKS enhancements.
When it comes to electrical design, one could assume that there are going to be inconsistencies and design errors, especially when it comes to larger projects with multiple designers involved. Fixing these mistakes before your project reaches the production stage will help reduce design time and cost, and luckily there is a tool to help locate these issues!
