Solidworks _ Hide/ show necessary edges in exporting SolidWorks Drawing

solidworks tips, sometimes we only need show edges which help us when reading we will see more clearly structure without showing unrelated ones. Therefore I will guide how to hide/show edges, lines which we want to show or not, for whom are self-studying SolidWorks software. This article introduces Hide/ show …

SolidWorks Tech Tips – Assemblies

Locking and Breaking Assembly References When working with external references in SolidWorks, it is extremely important that users understand the differences between Lock All and Break All. These functions, added in SolidWorks 2000, are for managing the associativity of features that are related to other part files or built in-context in an assembly. …

Guidelines for Selecting a Failure Criterion solidworks simulation

Guidelines for selecting the appropriate Failure Criterion to calculate the Factor of Safety of your design. Failure Criterion Evaluation Theoretical predictions for failure of lamina are compared with experiments by comparing failure envelopes (outside the envelope, lamina failure occurs) under various biaxial states of stress. A lamina is assumed to …

Summary of Failure Criteria solidworks simulation

The following table summarizes the failure criteria used to assess the safety of designs. Criterion Factor of Safety Material Type Maximum von Mises stress σlimit / σvonMises Ductile Maximum shear stress σ limit / (2 * τmax ) Ductile Mohr-Coulomb stress If ( σ1> 0 and σ3 > 0 ) …

Maximum Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

Failure Criterion The maximum stress criterion applies to composite shells. Failure occurs according to the maximum stress criterion when the stress in one of the principal material directions exceeds the strength in that direction. The overall state of stress in the global coordinates is first computed by the program. Then, …
