    Here is the tutorial.

    1. Step 1

      Open the bracket part in SolidWorks.

      Medium

    2. Step 2

      Click New study under study advisor in Simulation tab.

      Medium

    3. Step 3

      Input name Bracket and click OK.

      Medium

    4. Step 4

      Click Apply material.

      Medium

    5. Step 5

      Select alloy steel. Click apply and then close.

      Medium

    6. Step 6

      Select fixed geometry under fixture advisor.

      Medium

    7. Step 7

      Select the circular faces of the holes. Click OK.

      Medium

    8. Step 8

      Select Force under external loads advisor.

      Medium

    9. Step 9

      Select the top face of the bracket and input force of 1000N.

      Medium

    10. Step 10

      Select Create mesh under run.

      Medium

    11. Step 11

      Change mesh density to fine. Since this is not a big geometry we can decrease the mesh size and increase precision. Even then it's upto you to define the mesh size. Click OK.

      Medium

    12. Step 12

      Now our model is meshed.

      Medium

    13. Step 13

      Click Run to start simulation.

      Medium

    14. Step 14

      Now the solver will start solving the problem.

      Medium

    15. Step 15

      After solver is finished we have our plots. Default is Stress (von-Mises) plot.

      Medium

    16. Step 16

      Double click Displacement for displacement plot.

      Medium

    17. Step 17

      Double click Strain for strain plot. Now we have successfully completed the analysis of the bracket model in SolidWorks.
