LiveLink For SOLIDWORKS Builds Simulation Apps That Integrate With CAD

BURLINGTON, MA --- COMSOL, Inc. introduces an update to its LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS product. As an add-on to the COMSOL Multiphysics software, LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS allows a CAD model to be synchronized between the two software packages.

Connecting to COMSOL Server from within the SOLIDWORKS Interface The latest version of LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS allows easy access for launching and running simulation apps that can be used in synchronicity with SOLIDWORKS software. Simulation specialists and analysts can now build apps with the Application Builder to let users, such as design engineers, to analyze and modify a geometry from SOLIDWORKS software right from the tailor made interface of the app. Users can browse and run apps from within the SOLIDWORKS interface, including those that use a geometry that is synchronized with SOLIDWORKS software.

New App: Bike Frame Analyzer

With this update of LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS a new Bike Frame Analyzer app has been added to the Application Libraries in order to show the new capabilities. This app leverages LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS to interactively update the geometry while computing the stress distribution in the frame that is subject to various loads and constraints. Using this app, you can easily test different configurations of a bike frame for different parameters such as, dimensions, materials, and loads. The app computes the stress distribution and the deformation of the frame, based on the structural dimensions, materials, and loads/constraints of the bike frame.
