Tutorial - Simulation of Vice Grip in SolidWorks?
The model used is Vice Grip. The file consists of STEP, IGES, and Solidworks version.
Open the Vice Grip assembly.
Under simulation tab click Study advisor and then new study.
Keep the default settings and click OK.
Under fixture advisor click fixed geometry.
Select these face.
On the other side also. Keep the default settings and click OK.
Under external loads advisor click Force.
Select the handle face and input a value of 250N.
Apply the same force on the other side too.
We are not creating mesh. If we don't define the mesh, SolidWorks will automatically create mesh for the part. Click Run.
After solver is finished we have the Simulation results.
