Think you know which design is better?

Written by: SolidWorks R&D Ltd | Published:

When it comes to choosing the best design for your project, do you:

· Go with your gut;
· Over-engineer it, cross your fingers and hope for the best;
· Methodically test a series of expensive physical prototypes.

Now there is a better way. Test your designs before you build them, with design validation tools from SolidWorks.

Will this design work or will it overheat?

Will two fans improve cooling? Is it really worth the extra expense, noise and power requirements? Finding out normally involves several prototypes.

But SolidWorks flow simulation quickly provides the answer. Trying out multiple designs is a breeze, because once one flow simulation is set up, it's reused for all design variations. Effortlessly - and without a single prototype.

Vibration issues?

Will the vibrations from the blade cause the guard to vibrate excessively? If the design is no good, finding a fix can be challenging. If it vibrates too much, where do you add material to improve performance?

Vibration studies conducted with SolidWorks simulation tool provide the answer. In a matter of minutes, multiple design variations help determine which guard design is the best, without the need of a single prototype.
