When analyzing a SolidWorks assembly within COSMOSWorks, the available results to plot are initially displayed for the entire assembly. But I'd like to tell you about a trick to change that. And it might be the most important COSMOSWorks trick you learn this week.
Here in the image on the left, we see a simple, two-piece assembly and we're plotting the normal stresses in the Z. Note that the maximum stresses occur within the piece to the left. Let's call that the "collar." The second piece- we'll call that the pin shuttle- comes in to contact due to the loading and we're interested in the stess concentrations and maximum stress there. What do you do??
First, you must hide all components you are not interested in. Secondly, right-click the chart results in question and modify the Chart Options. You will be then presented with a checkbox option to show the Min/Max range on the shown part only.
After this, you may need to re-edit the definition of the plot but afterwards, the plot will correctly display the stresses, displacements, or strain for the desired part only.
