Hi all,

I have modelled a stent in solidworks and am happy with what i have.(See attached image)This stent is in its expanded state and i want to take it down to its crimpped state (also shown in the image)

I have a few questions about FEA and animation.

1, How can I apply a force to the model in Cosmosworks to take it from its expaned state to its crimpped state?

2, It there a way to animate the movement from expaned to crimpped state?

3, Can I use cosmosworks to measure the spring force of the stent when it is in its crimpped state.

All of your help is appreciated, and I look forward to your replies.

Note: I am using solidworks/ cosmoswors 2008 and have been attempting the FEA with a Non-Linear Analysis with a Nitinol model.
