Alignex SolidWorks Simulation Showcase
Tuesday, May 1st - Edina, MN
In this one day event, we will shatter some of the most common misconceptions about simulation and design analysis. Let us show you why simulation tools really are for EVERY designer in the product development process. SolidWorks Simulation software is easy to use, yet powerful enough to tackle the most complex design issues. It helps you predict the performance of your design under real-world operating conditions and to detect problems and correct them before prototyping, tooling, and production. Simulation is the next natural step for design engineers to utilize the 3D product data that they are already generating on a daily basis.

Forgeline Case Study with Simulation Professional
We know that real world part failure is rarely an acceptable option. Let us show you how SolidWorks Simulation Professional can be used in conjunction with your real life testing to provide a more efficient and comprehensive validation of your parts. We'll explore the benchmark validation that the product goes through. See how local company, Forgeline, used SolidWorks Simulation to create better products faster and gain an edge on the competition. Areas covered in this presentation will include:
- Linear Statistics
- Frequency & Fatigue
- Thermal Analysis
- Automated Design Optimization
Optimize the Design of Plastic Parts & Injection Molds with SolidWorks Plastic
If you design plastic parts or injection molds, SolidWorks Plastics is for you. It help you predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of part and mold design, eliminates costly mold rework, improves part quality, and decreases time to market. Areas covered in this presentation will include the following and more:
- Meshing System
- Plastics Flows Simulation
- Multi-part Simulation
- Generated Reports & Results Adviser
1:00 PM & 2:15 PM
Simulating real-world responses of your design has never been easier. See how SolidWorks advanced simulation products can predict complex material behaviors and could have actually predicted the o-ring problem on the space shuttle Challenger.
We'll perform some nonlinear analysis on plastics, rubbers, polymers, and foam. We'll evaluate the behavior of composite materials and also cover Frequency and Dynamics Simulation.
Event Based Motion
Create motion simulations based on events and actions, rather than just time. Actions can now be triggered by the completion of a previous task, or the activation of a motion sensor, as well as time. SolidWorks® software helps you move through the design cycle smarter. With flexible Event-Based Simulation, your team will be able to integrate design and controls—and streamline your live prototype and testing process.
HVAC & Electronics Cooling Modules
1:00 PM Electronics Cooling | 2:15 PM HVAC
SolidWorks Flow Simulation software is a powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tool that enables you to quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your design. We will have a session that will highlight the capabilities of the add-on HVAC module and another session to focus on the Electronics Cooling Module.
Green Design with SolidWorks Sustainability
More than just being environmentally friendly, "green" designs can also save your company some "green". Reduced resources and material alternatives can mean decreased costs. Sustainable design, like quality, time to market, and cost, will soon dictate how engineers approach most every product they develop. To stay ahead of the curve, you and your company need to understand sustainable design and how to implement it now.
