Simulation and analysis are invaluable for finding potential problems with a design. But what happens when a feature, like a weld, isn’t recognized by the simulation? Now with Creo 4.0, welds on sheet metal parts can be created as solids and measured, simulated, and analyzed. Here’s how:
The process is simple, and hasn’t changed much.
Now you can interact with the weld just like any other solid. For example, you can measure from the surface, edge, or groove of the weld:
Measuring the distance between a weld surface and an edge.
When it’s time to run a simulation, you can be confident that the weld will be treated like any other solid.
You can see a brief demo of these tips in the video below.
