With all of this capability, the program is surprisingly easy to learn and use. In her easy-to-follow, friendly style, long-time Cadalyst contributing editor Lynn Allen guides you through a new feature or time-saving trick in every episode of her popular AutoCAD Video Tips.

Analysis results can be viewed as contour plots of stress, tutoriall, and strains for all locations on a model, or at preselected locations such as vertices and reference points. It’s refreshing to review a product that has no pretense of being something “entirely new and.

With offices in Colorado and Michigan, he can be reached at Jeffrey Rowe is an independent mechanical design and technical communications consultant. Define the analysis type and options.

On the other hand, several analysis capabilities are expanded, which should appeal to more experienced users. Most users won’t outgrow its capabilities because the more they use it and become better acquainted with its settings and how to interpret its results, the more they discover what it can do.


It ccosmosworks a folder for each study, and study parameters reside in subfolders. Define material properties skip this step tutoial material properties were defined in SolidWorks.

View and compare the results.

Menus can also be used to accomplish all of this, but the tree is much more visual and intuitive—a good thing for new users. Define study parameters for their impact on a design. This test helps users design products that survive being dropped from a specified height or impacting a planar surface at cosmossworks specified velocity. All exclusively from Cadalyst! Chief Architect has been around for more than 10 years and has earned a solid reputation among its target group. Of the various types of analysis that COSMOSWorks performs, I found the most interesting one to be the new drop test figure 1 cosmoswokrs, especially for an analysis product in this price range.

Specify restraints and loads. Entire site Article Author Event News.

On one hand, this version simplifies several of the analysis processes for newer users. It simulates the working conditions of SolidWorks models and predicts cosmsworks physical behavior. Users can define material properties, loads, and restraints in any order, but they all must be defined before running a study. For example, they can compare the maximum stresses with allowable values for predicting material failure.


By itself the drop test study won’t automatically predict if a model will break or how components might separate on impact. Do you use social media — such as Facebook or Twitter updates, YouTube videos, or discussion forums — for work-related purposes?

Run the study or selected design scenarios. Regardless of the study type, all analyses follow the same basic steps: Setting up a drop test study involves defining the clsmosworks height, the acceleration of gravity, and the orientation of the impact plane. Please send any technical comments or questions to our ttuorial. It’s refreshing to review a product that has no pretense of being something “entirely new and Jeffrey Rowe is an independent mechanical design and technical communications consultant.

Reproduction in whole or in part is prohibited. Define as many as what-if design scenarios.

Users can, however, evaluate the results to assess the possibility of those events occurring. It employs the finite element method for performing FEA finite element csomosworks.
