SimWise Motion for IronCAD – SimWise Motion takes a design made up of assemblies of moving parts and simulates the kinematic and dynamic motion of the design allowing you to evaluate its function performance.
Directly transfer your IronCAD’s designs to SimWise through the SimWise Motion for IronCAD Add-in. To make your simulation closely reflect real word functionality, SimWise Motion allows you to add various motion characteristics to your model. SimWise Motion supports motors, actuators, gravity, realistic contact between bodies, springs, friction, damping and other generated forces as needed. Running a simulation is as simple as specifying how long you want the process to run and then clicking the calculator icon to compute your motion results.
SimWise Motion calculates several types of results that you can use to verify the operation of your design. Animations give you the visual feedback you need to understand if your design will work properly. However, what truly sets SimWise Motion apart from a general animation package is the ability to provide accurate, physics based, engineering data associated with the movement of the assembly. Result vectors and plots of displacement, velocity, acceleration and forces, give you the numerical information you need to fully understand the performance of your design. As you make design changes, you can compare the data to verify design improvement.
The SimWise Motion for IronCAD product is a special version of Design Simulation Technologies (DST’ s) Sim Wise Motion product. IC Sim Wise Motion has the same functionalities as DST’ s standard Sim Wise Motion product, except it doesn’t provide CAD files import capability. It is a standalone application which is able to communicate with IronCAD products in runtime through integration. Models are transferred from within IronCAD to SimWise Motion to begin the simulation. Updates in IronCAD can be updated in the transferred SimWise Model.
SimWise Motion for IronCAD Offerings will work for IRONCAD and INOVATE desktop products.
