Using Spring Connectors in SOLIDWORKS Simulation to Reduce Complexity in Your Analysis

I recently worked on a customer project which involved answering the question, “How can I represent complex sub-assemblies or components that are part of a larger assembly using SOLIDWORKS Simulation?” The customer wanted to include ball screws and linear rails. These sub-assemblies include bearings, threads, and complex mounting geometry that would require a significant amount of time and effort to setup and a significant amount of time to solve. Additionally, if I were to miss an element in the setup, the analysis could fail or the results may be invalid. One way to simplify an analysis that involves complex sub-assemblies or components is to replace them with spring connectors.
