Master Simulation and Structural Analysis for CAD

Once you've completed the design of a part, you've still got a long way to go before you can manufacture it. Modern CAD tools offer powerful analysis and simulation packages that take the tedious work out of finite element analysis. Learn how to use the tools that are built into various CAD packages to analyze the performance of your designs under real-world conditions, and use the results to improve product performance and safety.
Research the methods available for stress testing your designs.
Compare how alternative designs would behave under real-world stresses.
Analyze your parts for stress, displacement, and factor of safety.
