Factor of Safety Plots on Selected Bodies in SolidWorks Simulation

In SolidWorks Simulation 2013, you can now view your factor of safety information on any given part/body in your assembly. Prior to 2013, you had to view the factor of safety information on the entire assembly.In the Factor of Safety Property-Manager, click Selected Bodies (as shown below). Select one or multiple bodies to view plots of factor of safety distribution, or regions below the factor of safety. Results are shown only for the selected bodies.
