Optimizing Thor’s Hammer with Simulation

We were able to find the flaws in Mjölnir’s current design using Abaqus to conduct Finite Element Analysis studies. Then, we optimized the design using Tosca’s Topology Optimization tool to reduce the hammer’s volume and shift the natural frequency.

Best Practices for SOLIDWORKS Motion Analysis

SOLIDWORKS motion analysis uses the assembly mates along with part contacts and a robust physics-based solver to accurately determine the physical movements of an assembly under load. But, how do you know if you’re making the most out of this powerful tool?

SOLIDWORKS Simulation: Getting Started

Those new to SOLIDWORKS Simulation tend to look for the “easy” button. While the software can be easy to use, if it knew exactly what we wanted and how to do it we’d likely be out of jobs.
