TEC and SMA modelling in SolidWorks 2010?
« on: May 25, 2010, 12:23:35 PM »
I've read that SolidWorks 2010 Simulation has the capability to model shape memory alloys and thermoelectric coolers/heaters:

But I can't find in the program where I can define any part as Nitinol or import a TEC, nor does it elaborate in any of the tutorials or help contents.  Has anyone tried doing this?

Thanks, and good to be here!
