Intro to SOLIDWORKS Simulation

An introductory course on setting up Linear Static Stress and Fatigue finite element analysis in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

This course serves as an introduction to the Linear Static Stress and Fatigue study types. The covered material includes the entire analysis process from meshing to evaluation of results for parts and assemblies to attain the fundamental skills and concepts to utilize SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

***The videos are recorded using 2017 version of SOLIDWORKS***


Learning Methodology: The best way to learn is by doing. Use 2 monitors connected to the graphics card of your computer. Have one monitor (or mobile device) playing the video and the other monitor displaying SOLIDWORKS. You can also have the video playing on a mobile device such as a tablet or smart phone if you do not have 2 monitors available. Work along with the video to complete the tasks discussed in the video. Pause, rewind, and play the video as necessary while you work along with the instructor. Repeat the process as many times as you wish.
