Research Report - Simulation-Driven Design for SOLIDWORKS Users
Products are becoming more complex. Development timelines are compressing. Competition is rising and costs must shrink. Is simulation the answer?

In this engineering.com research report, we discuss the rising role of simulation and the paradigm shift commonly called the democratization of simulation. In particular, we focus on how SOLIDWORKS users can take advantage of simulation-driven design through two analysis tools:

  • SOLIDWORKS Simulation, an integrated simulation platform for SOLIDWORKS that attempts to give CAD users quick and intuitive access to simulation capabilities.
  • 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS, a cloud platform with several simulation capabilities that extends the functionality of SOLIDWORKS Simulation for more comprehensive analysis.

In this research report, you will learn:

  • What is simulation-driven design, and why is it important?
  • How to take advantage of simulation-driven design.
  • The features of SOLIDWORKS Simulation and the analysis tools available in 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS.
  • The merits of desktop versus cloud simulation.
  • How to choose a simulation solution.
