Abstract


As demands of technology and equipment increase, the requirement to quickly create a computer model of a product increases. Usingmodern 3D modelling software, more severe technical mistakes can be avoided, which are noticeable in the production stage, beforemanufacturing of a part. In this article, the principles of modelling and simulation while using SolidWorks software package arestudied. Modelling and prototyping of a rotating and redirecting platform is chosen as an example. A virtual model of the platformwas created to test it with modelling software, the forces that will interact with it are calculated and endurance of it‘s structure wasanalyzed. This kind of testing shows the weak aspects of this assembly. The results received showed, that additional supports are notnecessary.

KEY WORDS: SolidWorks, virtual model, simulation.
