Mechatronics Concept Designer accelerates mechatronics system design
Mechatronics Concept Designer revolutionizes the machine design process by helping you design faster and with higher quality. Mechatronics Concept Designer provides an end-to-end solution that enables multi-discipline collaboration, reduced time-to-market, re-use of existing knowledge, and better decision making through concept evaluation.
Integrated Systems Engineering Approach
Using systems engineering principles, you can trace customer requirements all the way through to a finished design. A functional model provides a common language for mechanical, electrical and automation disciplines to work together in parallel, helping you deliver designs faster and with fewer integration issues late in your design process.
Physics-Based Simulation Capability
Mechatronics Concept Designer’s easy-to-use modeling and simulation enables you to quickly create and validate alternative mechatronics design concepts very early in the development cycle. Working from the functional model, you can quickly create basic component geometry, or add components from the re-use library. For each component, you can specify joints, motion, collision behavior and other kinematic and dynamic properties, and add sensors and actuators. Physics-based, interactive simulation verifies proper machine operation. The early verification helps you detect and correct errors when they are least expensive to resolve.
Open Interfaces to Other Tools
The output from Mechatronics Concept Designer can be used directly by multiple disciplines for detailed design work.
- Mechanical designers can use concept models in NX for detailed design.
- Electrical designers can use model data to select sensors and actuators.
- Automation designers use cams and operation sequence information from the model for software development.
