How do I use Cosmos to analyze an assembly?



Hello I am new to this forum and to SolidWorks. Is it possible to use CosmosXpress to perform a FE analysis on an assembly in SolidWorks 2000.
If so, could anyone provide some tips to get started.
CosmosXpress can not be used on an assembly.

CosmosXpress can not be used on an assembly. It only does parts, but you could make the assembly a part then it would work. The results would be a rough idea because the assembly is now part (one solid piece). Hope this helps.
