      It depends on the size of the equipment I’m simulating. By far the longest amount of time is spent on creating the geometry. That can take anywhere from 1 or 2 days to a few weeks. Calculating the forces and applying them doesn’t usually take more than a couple of days. Then it depends on if the equipment passes or fails. I often have to fix designs that fail which generally takes a lot of trial and error.
