Design Simulation Technologies engineers development offers kinematic and dynamic motion simulation integration.
Design Simulation Technologies (DST) engineers launch a new product, SimWise 4D, which is a mechanical simulation product providing 3D kinematic and dynamic motion simulation integrated with Finite Element Analysis. DST is pleased to acknowledge this new product comes to market with the help of Spatial Corp.’s 3D ACIS Modeler and 3D InterOp components.
The creation of SimWise 4D is for mechanical designers and engineers who need to simulate the performance of their designs. While applicable to all mechanical industries, SimWise 4D has a clear focus on products consisting of moving mechanical assemblies. SimWise 4D helps designers and engineers obtain answers to fundamental questions about their designs, such as “Does it Work?” and “Will it Break?” It brings 3D dynamic motion simulation integrated in a single package plus tight connections to CAD systems to the engineer’s desktop in a product that does not require an engineering analyst to operate.
The product’s Integrated Mechanical Design Simulation; 3D Dynamic Motion combined with FEA; tight integration with leading CAD systems; physics-based high-definition animation; and link to control simulation products provide a complete mechanical simulation environment. Required by DST to represent model geometry, evaluate mass properties, and check for interference, with all analyses performed on imported CAD geometry are 3D modeling capabilities and CAD translation components. The flexibility and robustness of 3D ACIS Modeler address the breadth of DST’s modeling needs. 3D InterOp delivers the highest quality data exchange of CAD formats, enabling superior CAD file translation; meeting DST requirements for error-free data. The quality of data import reduces support burden and allows engineers to start analysis sooner rather than work to clean up the model. It is this quality and ability to support DST’s unique requirements that allows SimWise 4D to pass on crucial benefits to the end-user such as reducing the number of physical prototypes, decreasing warranty costs, and improving product quality.
“Spatial’s components allowed us to get our product to market faster with world-class modeling and interoperability,” states Alan Wegienka, DST director. “It would not have been possible to bring this product to market without Spatial’s technology because we would never have been able to develop the modeling and interoperability technology we obtained from Spatial.” "We are excited about our partnership with the DST team, and helping them deliver SimWise 4D. The technical advancements in the product confirm Spatial’s value – enabling DST to focus on innovative analysis rather than managing data translation issues or developing algorithms for tessellation and collision detection,” comments Ray Bagley, Spatial director of product planning and management. “Our commitment to DST continues and we are eager to assist them as they engage their customers and continue to extend SimWise 4D.”
