Quick Answer: What is a fixture in Solidworks?

The Fixture PropertyManager allows you to prescribe zero or non-zero displacements on vertices, edges, or faces for use with static, frequency, buckling, dynamic and nonlinear studies.

What is a bearing fixture in Solidworks?

The PropertyManager allows you to simulate the interaction between a shaft and the ground through a bearing. Since the components supporting the shaft are assumed to be much more rigid than the shaft, they can be considered as the ground.

How do you define a restraint in Solidworks?

To apply a restraint: In a study, do one of the following: Right-click Fixtures and select from the options.

Under Variation with time, do the following:

  1. Click Linear to use a default linear time curve, or click Curve then click Edit. …
  2. Enter a name for the time curve in the Name box.

What degrees of freedom does an immovable fixture remove?

This restraint type sets all translational degrees of freedom to zero.

How do you use fixtures?

To access the fixture function, the tests have to mention the fixture name as input parameter. Pytest while the test is getting executed, will see the fixture name as input parameter. It then executes the fixture function and the returned value is stored to the input parameter, which can be used by the test.

Which types of models can be analyzed with SimulationXpress?

SimulationXpress supports the analysis of a single, solid body. It does not support assemblies, multibody parts, or surface bodies. For lessons on SimulationXpress, see SimulationXpress in the Online Tutorial. Why Simulate?

What is a bearing fixture?

A bearing fixture assumes that the housing support is much more rigid than the shaft, so its flexibility is not important and it can be considered ground. So, when the housing support isn’t rigid and its flexibility needs to be taken into consideration, you will want to use a bearing connector.

What is the degree of freedom for fixed support?

Fixed-support: A fixed support prevents all movements and rotations at the point where it is attached to the structure. The joint with fixed support has no degrees of freedom, and therefore, there are six support reactions applied from the support to the structure.
