Kineo Collision Detector (KCD) software analyzes spatial interference in CAD/CAM and robotic systems. KCD performs 3D collision detection and minimal distance analysis between triangular mesh surfaces in assembly environments.
KCD can be configured to perform different levels of collision analyses according to the application’s requirements. Software applications can rapidly determine the collision status of an object or obtain a detailed analysis of all colliding facets. It’s possible to measure the minimum distance between non-colliding objects. For colliding objects, KCD can calculate a translation that will restore them to a non-colliding state.
KCD is designed to minimize memory usage and take advantage of parallel processing with:
Industry applications for KCD include clash analysis in assembly validation and collision avoidance in digital mock-up and robotic simulation, among others.
Specialized options are available for collision analysis in complex kinematics (KCD Dynamic) and point cloud environments (KCD for Point Cloud). For collision detection on exact geometry, Siemens PLM Software also offers the D-Cubed CDM component.
