Analyzing realistic part interactions in SOLIDWORKS Simulation just got easier with the Contact Visualization Plot, now available to all licenses of Simulation starting in 2019 SP4! This tool makes quick work of complex assembly study setup with several important tools:

When a body is underconstrained in Simulation it may fail to reach convergence. The solution is usually to find and add the missing constraint or fixture, but in large assemblies it may not always be obvious where to look. This is the perfect workflow for any assembly that fails to solve due to improper constraints or fixtures.

FYI: Typical errors that indicate an underconstrained body:
