Default Options – Plot – Drop Test Study solidworks simulation

Sets default result templates (folders and plots) for drop test studies. You can include plots of different types in one or more folders with customized names.

When you run a study that does not have any existing result plots, the software creates the folders and plots as specified in this page. If you run a study that has valid or invalid plots, the existing plots are updated regardless of the settings specified in this page.

To define a result template:

  1. Click Simulation > Options.
  2. On the Default Options tab, under Plot, expand Default Plots.
  3. To add a new results folder, right-click Drop Test Study Results and select Add New Folder.

    A new results folder appears under Drop Test Study Results with a default name. Type a new name or click anywhere to accept the default name.

    The maximum number of result folders is five.

     

  4. To add a plot, right click a results folder and select Add New Plot.

    A new plot appears in the results folder. You may not change the name here, but you can rename the plot in the study level.

    To delete a plot or a results folder, right-click their icon and select Delete.

     

  5. Select the type of plot from the Results type drop-down menu, and the plot component from the Results component drop-down menu.
