SolidWorks:Heard! - Episode 357 - SW2012 What's New - Design Simulation

SW2012 What's New - Design Simulation:

This podcast dissects the What's New PDF, outlining all the new features in SolidWorks 2012 along with other tips, tricks and tidbits in the new software. Topics covered in this show:

Chapter 19: Simulation

- Beams and shell mesh enhancements

- Connector and parameter UI updates

- Motion Optimizaiton

- Nonlinear performance

Chapter 14: Motion Studies

- Optimization

- Motion results in Sensors

Chapter 12: Flow Simulation

- Additional models and technloogy

- Pre-processing updates

- Post-processing tool improvements

Design Simulation, covering chapters 19, 14 and 12 of the What's New PDF, outlines changes/enhancements to the SolidWorks product line since the previous release.  If you have not done so, please download this PDF and walk through the areas that are most important to you.

The goal of this series is to provide a portable, audio version of the 2012 What's New, providing a quick way to evaluate new features that have been changed/added/removed in the SolidWorks product line.  We all fall victim to the "ruts" of using SolidWorks from release to release and knowing what's to come brings awareness early.

I will be releasing an additional show a week as well as the usual monthly Tech News shows (up to 3 a week) in order to cover the entire What's New PDF before FCS (First Customer Ship). Between the podcast, blog and other posts around the web, there will be no shortage of SolidWorks 2012 content to come!
