SOLIDWORKS Simulation Bowling


I’ll be honest, the primary motivator for this simulation was to figure out why I’m so terrible at bowling. So, I decided to simulate different hits to figure out what was happening. This is where motion simulation is helpful. Let's Start SOLIDWORKS Simulation Bowling.

Testing an Anti-Shark Cage in SOLIDWORKS Simulation
