Chief Architect has been around for more than 10 years and has earned a solid reputation among its target group. On the other hand, several analysis capabilities are expanded, which should appeal to more experienced users. Define study parameters for their impact on a design.

COSMOSWorks 2005

Please send any technical comments or questions to our webmaster. Jeffrey Rowe Comprehensive analysis features for SolidWorks. Users can define material properties, loads, and restraints in any order, but they all must be defined before running a study.

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 tutoria AutoCAD Video Tips. Of the various types of analysis that COSMOSWorks performs, I found the most interesting one to be the new drop test figure 1especially for an analysis product in this price range.

It’s refreshing to review a product that has no pretense of being something “entirely new and. View and compare the results. It employs the finite element method for performing FEA finite element analysis.

Setting up a drop test study involves defining the drop height, the acceleration of gravity, and the orientation of the impact plane. 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.

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.

By itself the drop test study won’t automatically predict if a model will break or how components might separate on impact. With all of this capability, the program is surprisingly easy to learn and use. With offices in Colorado and Michigan, he can be reached at No rotations of the model can be considered until the initial impact occurs.

Reproduction in whole or in cosmpsworks is prohibited. Define as many as what-if design scenarios. Define material properties skip this step if material properties were defined in SolidWorks. Run the study or selected design scenarios.


Regardless of the study type, all analyses follow the same basic steps: It simulates the working conditions of SolidWorks models and predicts their physical behavior. Specify restraints and loads.

Entire site Article Author Event News. Analysis results cosnosworks be viewed as contour plots of stress, displacement, and strains for all locations on a model, or at preselected locations such as vertices and reference points. Jeffrey Rowe is an independent mechanical design and technical communications consultant.

Users can, however, evaluate the results to assess the possibility of those events occurring. Mesh the model divide it into small elements for analysis.

Menus can also be used to accomplish all of this, but the tree is much more visual and intuitiveā€”a cossmosworks thing for new users.

Define the analysis type and options. It creates a folder for each study, and study parameters reside in subfolders. All exclusively from Cadalyst!

For example, they can compare the maximum stresses with allowable values for predicting material failure.
