  • Understand Dynamic Effects

    • Engineers need not wait for physical prototypes to test a product’s dynamic behavior. With PTC Creo Mechanism Dynamics Extension, you can virtually simulate the forces and accelerations in systems with moving components.

    • And, you can adjust product performance by incorporating dynamic influences such as springs, motors, friction, and gravity. Improve your verification and validation process and maximize design confidence without the expensive burden of building prototypes.

  • Analyze Dynamic Forces with a Powerful Virtual Prototyping Solution

    • Creo Mechanism Dynamics Extension (MDX) allows you to virtually simulate real-world forces and analyze how your product will react to them, without building costly physical prototypes.

    • Gaining insight into product behavior early in the design phase allows you to build better products, while saving you time and money

Simulate Product Performance

  • Simulate Real-World Forces

    With Creo MDX, you can determine–on the desktop–how your design will react to dynamic forces, such as gravity and friction. Since you can conduct this analysis without having to build a physical prototype, you can perform your tests very early in the design phase, when correcting problems is much less costly. And when you do build a physical prototype, it’s likely to be of much higher quality, as you’ve already completed a series of vigorous tests, virtually. By building fewer physical prototypes, you not only cut costs, but you also reduce time-to-market because you’re building a better quality product that is ‘right the first time’.

  • Design and Analyze Concurrently

    Creo MDX takes advantage of the integrated toolset of Creo. This means there are no errors in data translation from one application to another. Additionally, engineers working with Creo MDX are already familiar with the graphical user interface, as it is the same one used to design the product in Creo. Furthermore, since Creo MDX already leverages the same model data as Creo, you won’t waste time translating data for analysis. After implementing engineering changes, you simply rerun the analysis, generating a higher quality model faster.

  • Explore Real-World Behavior

    Simulate gravity, springs, dampers, belts, gears, contact and friction without creating a physical prototype. Perform kinematic analysis (position, velocity, and acceleration analysis) as well as dynamic motion analysis (friction, gravity, and forces). Detect problems with clearances and interferences early in the design cycle. Import behavioral data from applications such as PTC’s Mathcad or Microsoft Excel, and apply to existing models to determine their performance under this behavior

  • Integrate Design and Simulation

    Transfer reaction, gravity, and inertial loads directly to Creo Simulate. Set design feasibility and optimization study goals for kinematic and dynamic performance. Leverage integration with other Creo solutions, such as Creo Simulate and Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension, both for optimization and complete virtual product analysis. Use parametric motion features to re-use and create variants of motion models.
