Step Up to Simulation: Material Selection
In mechanical design, material selection is critical to the design process. Choosing the wrong material can double your production cost, lead to quality issues, or reduce your product’s lifespan. Without question, the materials make the design. How do you know which material is right?
Testing different materials while you design is the best way to know if your product will perform as intended. By analyzing the effects of different materials in SOLIDWORKS® Simulation, you can answer tough questions. Is this material strong enough for my application, while being light enough to remain competitive in the market, but also cost effective so my project stays within budget?
