I have a simulation study of a single part in an assembly file (all other parts excluded from the study). I would like to show the stress plot of this part in relation to the other parts (not included in the simulation study).   When I show the stress plot of the study, all the other parts disappear. I can't find a way to show them when the… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi, I am working on topology optimization of a beam for a project and I have a problem. I am supposed to optimizate this beam so that its stiffness is highest for most of its mass removed. However when looking at the results for diffrent percentages of mass removed I realized that stiffness increases as mass decreases. How is this possible, I am… (Show more)

I am working on a simulation, and I assigned a body as a remote mass.  I then un-assigned it as a remote mass, but now it won't let me make it a remote mass again.  It says it can't be made a remote mass again because a body it was attached to was already a remote mass.  I am paraphrasing of course.  Any idea how to get SW simulation to forget… (Show more)

This may affect a few more people here.   I'm running SW 2020 SP1 (because SP2 has a problem). Windows updates installed on shutdown yesterday. Simulation became very slow on certain operations, like redrawing a mesh or simulation result. I first reinstalled display drivers [nVidia Quadro K2200], for no effect. Checking the new Windows… (Show more)

Hi everyone, I'm experiencing a peculiar error when clicking on "SOLIDWORKS Simulation" in the Add-In tab. The error is: "g8b: image idices are not proper...plz check the order in enums and the images" As you can see in the image.   When the error pops out, it doesn't go away, even if I click on OK or to close the window and I have to… (Show more)

I've got a random-vibration model that runs fine but when I go to look at the results, I get the message "insufficient data in results file."  The working directory does indeed contain the results files, but no matter what I try to do, including shutting down and re-starting, I still get the same message.   Any help appreciated.

I am having a recurring problem of static simulation studies disappearing mid-use.   I'm working in an assembly file with multiple studies painstakingly created, some of them completely solved, and in the middle of working on the file it seems to revert back to a version from HOURS earlier - some study tabs have simply disappeared. I save the… (Show more)

Hi, I have a gantry with a gripper, so its a fairly complex assembly. I want to animate the gantry moving from side to side and the gripper opening and closing. all my mates are great, in the model view I can move it all with limit-distance mates and everything is so nice and dandy. But when I open the Motion study tab. . . Dear god, I dont… (Show more)
