Extending SOLIDWORKS Simulation’s Capabilities with the 3DEXPERIENCE

The Solidworks Blog

With the 3D EXPERIENCE® platform, you can now leverage the most advanced and powerful simulation capabilities in the industry: the gold standard for advanced nonlinear solvers, world-leading general contact algorithm, ability to quickly solve large and complex assemblies, cloud computing that reduces computation time, advanced mechanics, hex meshing—the list goes on and on. You can, with a click of a button (using the so-called “1-click”), import SOLIDWORKS® Simulation native geometries, model features and simulation setup (including all previously defined loads, boundary conditions, mesh definitions, and material properties) into Structural Professional Engineer , the newest cloud-based simulation offering for SOLIDWORKS customers. Created by our sister brand SIMULIA®, the solution is part of the SIMULIAWORKS portfolio of simulation solutions connected on the 3D EXPERIENCE platform. It goes without saying that changes made in SOLIDWORKS CAD models update automatically in Structural Professional Engineer, eliminating the need to redefine your simulation setup and saving you a ton of time! Communicate with Ease. With simulation tools on the 3D EXPERIENCE platform, you can quickly obtain prompt feedback from project stakeholders using the 3D EXPERIENCE collaboration tools for review and markup—everyone can access their data from any device and at any location. Consequently, sharing simulation results with key project members is a breeze. This state-of-the-art capability speeds up the approval processes that are essential to the product development cycle, allowing companies to bring safer, higher quality, more reliable and affordable products to market faster than ever before. Also, companies will be able to easily capture, share, and leverage simulation knowledge from their simulation specialists. This allows them to retain and reuse their computer-aided engineering (CAE) data company-wide and build on their simulation intellectual property to innovate even more in the future. Taking Simulation to a New Level. The 3D EXPERIENCE platform is a fully integrated, multidisciplinary platform that consolidates all Dassault Systèmes® technologies. Now, when SOLIDWORKS CAD or Simulation users have advanced and highly nonlinear simulation needs, they can easily access the 3D EXPERIENCE platform to take advantage of the industry’s most advanced and powerful simulation tools. With the 3D EXPERIENCE platform, SOLIDWORKS customers have access to advanced simulation technologies including finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), electromagnetics, and more. You will be able to fulfill all your simulation needs with access to advanced simulation products such as Structural Professional Engineer and many more advanced simulation products to come. As a result, you will be able to bring your products to market faster, be more competitive and innovative. We are excited to hear your feedback about these new capabilities—leave a comment below.

Re-imagine the Future of Prosthetics at the 3DEXPERIENCE for Good Hackathon

The Solidworks Blog

Take part in 3D EXPERIENCE For Good activities at 3D EXPERIENCE World: Let’s break down all the activities being held in the brand-new 3D EXPERIENCE For Good area, which will be located inside the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground (formerly the Partner Pavilion): Day one : Be part of an initiative to arm tens of thousands of amputees with next-generation prosthetic hands at the 3D EXPERIENCE for Good Hackathon. This year at 3D EXPERIENCE World we are giving our community the opportunity to help to re-imagine the next massively distributable, low-cost prosthetic hand as part of the inaugural 3D EXPERIENCE For Good Hackathon. There are over 12 million humans affected by forearm amputations all over the world. Over the past 15 years, the Ellen Meadows Prosthetic Hand Foundation has delivered 50,000 low-cost, light, durable, functional prosthetic hands based on a pre-CAD design. We are inviting our users to invent what the next chapter of this story looks like, incorporating modern design tools—along with some innovative, out-of-the-box thinking—to improve the design and manufacturability of the prosthetic hand while satisfying a variety of constraints. The challenge is to come up with proposals that can sustain 1 Million+ hand donations to the most remote corners of the globe. At 3D EXPERIENCE World 2020, we are humbled to be able to change the world directly for those that need it most. We will be forming five teams of five people representing fresh minds, strong mechanical engineering disciplines, and creative industrial design approaches while we provide 3D EXPERIENCE experts to come up with the best proposals. Though the actual 3D EXPERIENCE For Good Hackathon teams will already have been selected prior to the event, 3D EXPERIENCE World attendees will have the opportunity to get involved in a dedicated area within the 3D EXPERIENCE Playground. Hackathon teams will finalize their work on their respective proposals and present their work to the panel of judges live. Selections will be announced on the final day during the general session. As an attendee, you’ll be able to vote on the best candidate and witness the magic of a hackathon first-hand. Day two : You will have the opportunity to get hands on and assemble current generation LN-4 prosthetic hands, which will then be donated to people in need around the world. Day three : Take part in the first-ever Every Kid Gets a Robot (EKGAR) Workshop, in which you will work in groups to assemble a robot. Courtesy of Danielle Boyer’s EKGAR program, the robots assembled will be donated to further STEM education in the local community Learn more about Danielle’s program in this Born to Design Podcast.
