SOLIDWORKS: Design Study and Optimization

Designing a part or component is just the first step. How will it stand up in the real world? You could fabricate your design and test it under real-world stresses, but each time you learn something new, you’d have to modify your design, make it again, and retest. Although real-world testing is important, you can use the Design Study tool built into SOLIDWORKS to harness computing power to simulate how an object will stand up to real-world stresses. In this course, instructor Sam Sharkawi steps through how to create variables and sensors, set up a design table, and run a design study. Then, he shows how to run a simulation and use what you learn to improve your design.
