Simulation and Motion Optimization

SW Motion is a great tool to understand kinematics of a mechanism. The  2012 version of Motion has a great new feature. If you use actuators and sensors to control the movement of a mechanism, you can optimize the entire design virtually. Typically, to get the system correctly configured would take many trial and errors on an actual machine or many hours of hand calculations.


A user can simply input sensors as a variable and the optimization tool to study range of motion. In addition constraints can be given to ensure SOLIDWORKS motion find an optimum design for you. Check out this video…let me know how this will help your design processes.
