Join Tony Abbey for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of SOLIDWORKS: Simulation for Finite Element Analysis.
- [Anthony] Well, thanks for coming along and joining me on my course. I hope you enjoyed it. I certainly enjoyed teaching it. Here are some Next Steps we can think about. You should now have a very good overview of the FEA workflow. And what I really recommend is you experiment. Try variations on the loads, on the constraints, on the boundary conditions and so on. Basically, have fun with those FEA models. Look out for more FEA courses coming from me. Now, I have an online presence, both at Digital Engineering and LinkedIn. Digital Engineering I write articles every month.
There's over 60 articles now in the database. This is my author portal so you can go straight here. And this is one of the articles that I have. This is my LinkedIn profile. I'll be delighted if you send me an invite to connect. I'll be happy to accept that. And finally, if you want to contact me directly for any mentoring, or if you have any problems with analysis projects, this is my email email@example.com. So again, in summary, thanks very much for your time. Thanks very much for your company during this course.
Really hope you enjoyed it, and good luck with all your FEA endeavors.
