LiveLink for SolidWorks Allows Users to Build Applications That Integrate Simulation and 3D Design


COMSOL, the leading provider of multiphysics modeling, simulation, and application design software, has announced support for app development in the latest version of LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS. Part of COMSOL Multiphysics software, the only fully integrated environment for creating custom simulation applications, LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS connects COMSOL software simulations and 3D design and its latest version allows users to build apps with the Application Builder. This provides design engineers with a better understanding of how SOLIDWORKS software designs perform in the intended operating environment by delivering an accurate evaluation of the impact of any physical effects and their interactions. With LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS and the Application Builder, engineers can build apps based on COMSOL models created from a SOLIDWORKS software geometry. LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS allows them to import and perform operations on their CAD geometries from within an app and then synchronize the final geometry with SOLIDWORKS software.

LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS includes a bidirectional interface between the COMSOL Desktop environment and SOLIDWORKS software. This allows synchronization of the CAD design with the COMSOL model; it also lets the simulation control the CAD design parameters in the SOLIDWORKS software file. For even closer integration, the One Window interface makes the familiar windows, tools, icons, and menu items from COMSOL Multiphysics available within the SOLIDWORKS software user interface, enabling users to set up simulations without leaving the CAD design environment.
