“Garbage in, gospel out.” A slightly different take on the old adage, this is a popular perspective on analysis results. But we engineers know better, right? Simulation results are generally only as good as the inputs to the problem. Or at least, you need to understand the limits of your engineering assumptions, and guide your interpretation of results accordingly. There are however many times you’re certain your simulation results are wrong, and yet you can’t figure out why.

Barbecue season is right around the corner! So, for this week's Make Your Own Solution, I am using SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation to design a meat smoker out of a cardboard box and a broken crock pot.

Designers and engineers already love SOLIDWORKS Simulation for its ability to set up real-world environments. But what if they could take these comprehensive simulation results and blending them with photo renderings? Now, they can.
With new advancements in SOLIDWORKS 2017, users can get the best of both worlds and combine rendering and simulation results. Here’s how:
Recently, I was reviewing one of Keith’s articles about Simulation file structure and moving files. While these are great articles, I noticed he skipped over a simulation software that is near and dear to my heart: SOLIDWORKS Plastics! So, to correct this oversite, let me give you a primer on managing your SOLIDWORKS Plastics studies.

This month, students from around the world competed for glory in FIRST STRONGHOLD. In just six weeks, high school students built, programmed and tested robots with the guidance of adult mentors.
FIRST STRONGHOLD was meant to replicate a medieval battle, with robots raising portcullises, lowering drawbridges, scaling towers, crossing moats, and of course, launching cannon balls into the enemy tower. With so many elements, versatility was a key motivation in design.

The U.S., Soviet Union and China are the only nations to land on the moon. But soon, anyone will be able to make their mark on its surface.
Astrobotic is a "lunar logistics" company that wants to send your stuff to the moon. Believe it or not, affordable missions to the moon are underway with the development of Astrobotic’s Griffin Lander, the world’s first privately owned spacecraft.
