SolidWorks Simulation is included within SolidWorks 3D CAD Design Premium package. It offers core simulation tools which assist well in testing your designs and enhancing the quality of your decisions. One of those tools is SolidWorks Simulation Cleaning Utility.

It is a slightly lesser known tool that gets installed with SolidWorks Software. The benefit of this tool is that you can use it to permanently delete any simulation data, including results information and simulation setup from any of the SolidWorks assembly file or part file. For all we know, disk space is almost always a limitation and hence, needs to be cleaned for optimum and efficient utilization.  

Here we discuss how you can use the SolidWorks Simulation Cleaning Utility tool to the fullest. Before we do, we must mention that you would need to create a back-up of your file, and ensure your file is not open in SolidWorks.

To open the tool, browse to its default location, which is in the C-Drive, namely, “C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\Simulation\Utilities. Then, double-click on the Simulation Cleaning Utility executable.

Post that you will need to follow these minor steps. Browse for the file, select the type of data you wish to delete and finally, click on the Clean File button.

This will help you get rid of all the unwanted files, provided you select and manually delete them. To learn about more such cool features of SolidWorks it is advisable to take up SolidWorks Simulation Training at FEA Training Consultants.
