Are your designs BSI 5295 proof? Are your designs ISO 9001 proof?
What happens if a client or customer asks you these questions, how do you determine whether your designs meet or fail a specific industry standard? Well you don’t until you have tested them. To verify industry standards you can conduct physical testing or use simulation software.
In SolidWorks Simulation you have the tools to be able to conduct in depth FEA and CFD analysis. The results can then be exported into a professional report for you to present to your client in confidence.
Proving Industry Standards in SolidWorks
This great example shows how SolidWorks can be used to certify a design meets a specific factor of safety or standard.
Cadtek Systems customer T & I Solutions specialise in working at height and safe access solutions, using SolidWorks to design and manufacture a wide range of products. Recently a client asked them to prove a design met the current British Standards for permanent ladders, stairs and walkways (BS5395 – Part 3). Knowing SolidWorks had the capability and rather than subcontracting this job out, they approached Cadtek support desk to ask how this could be achieved.
In the below video tutorial Elite SolidWorks Engineer, Stuart Wortley, was able to take their design and using SolidWorks Simulation, produce a report that proved just this!
