LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS®


Integrated Interface for COMSOL® Simulations and 3D Designs in SOLIDWORKS®

COMSOL Multiphysics® with LiveLink™ for SOLIDWORKS® delivers enhanced connectivity so you can efficiently integrate simulation into your design workflow. SOLIDWORKS® is a premier CAD solution for 3D design and product data management. When used together with multiphysics simulation, it provides a powerful tool for product design, evaluation and optimization. Using LiveLink™ for SOLIDWORKS®, you can leverage the functionality of COMSOL Multiphysics to better understand how your SOLIDWORKS® design performs in its intended operating environment and accurately evaluate the impact of essentially any physical effects and their interactions.

The One Window Interface Brings COMSOL Multiphysics Into the SolidWorks User Interface

LiveLink™ for SOLIDWORKS® includes a bidirectional interface between the COMSOL Desktop® and SOLIDWORKS®. Through this interface, you can synchronize the CAD design with the COMSOL model, and, in the other direction, you can let your simulation control the design parameters in the SolidWorks file. This enables the optimizing of CAD designs through simulations with automated parametric sweeps. Providing an even closer integration, the One Window Interface brings the familiar windows, tools, icons, and menu items from COMSOL Multiphysics and makes them available to set up and run simulations from within the SolidWorks user interface.
