'Test Project' simulation project by bdouglas

I created a new simulation project called 'Test Project':

Test import from onshape


More of my public projects can be found here.

Hi @bdouglas,
I see you are trying to simulate different loading scenarios on a small house like structure. You seem to have succeeded in getting the result for the first case but if you look in the post processing, you would see that the result is trivial.

The man problem is that you have unconstrained system. You have applied load on the roof and fixed the flooring but your doors are not connected to the roof or the floor. In order to do that, I would suggest you to merge all the volumes in a CAD software and remesh it. You can also remove unnecessary features like alphabets which are not load carrying. For more details please have a look at the following forum post.

If you still have problems, feel free to comment below.

Best,
