This time, instead of just running a static stress analysis, an event simulation will be run as well. If the part is indeed a mixture of recycled PC and ABS, the part will likely still pass a static analysis, but fail under repeated impact testing.

Thus, the part may be able to endure impact and rough handling, but continued exposure to impact damage can lead to sustained damage and eventual failure. This follows with the lower Izod impact strength that recycled blends exhibit.

As expected, the part passes the static stress test, with slightly less of a safety factor than the stock fusion360 values for PC:ABS.
