The SOLIDWORKS shell symmetry feature is quite useful when carrying out a simulation of parts that are symmetric. With the shell symmetry fixture, we can carry out simulation on a single symmetric component and replicate the results on the other portions.
We begin by creating a symmetric part, preferably a circular part.
A quarter portion of such a part would look like the one below.
To create symmetry study, we require symmetry fixtures. In order to use this fixture, we will need to create a new static study.
