CATIA powered by 3DEXPERIENCE®

Available on Premise and on the Cloud

Leveraging on the capacity of innovation for companies of all sizes in all industries by delivering breakthrough productivity design solutions powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE enables the full spectrum of next-generation collaborative virtual design including systems engineering, shape design, mechanical and equipment engineering and company knowledge reuse.

The CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE portfolio contains over 50 roles to support user experiences in design, mechanical,  electrical, fluid and systems engineering, providing a lean and intuitive environment for all activities. Users now have an action bar at the bottom of the screen containing commands in the context of the current task. These are arranged intelligently in groups that reflect real-life workflows, making it natural to find the right function. Standardized icons are used, enabling a rapid user learning curve and leading to immediate productivity gains.

How to use sensors in MSC Adams

Using Sensors to Latch a Mechanism

Sometimes with a mechanism simulation you need to trigger a change in the mechanism when an event such as a latch engaging to stop a component from moving any further. You can model the geometry and use a contact model to capture the physical engagement of the geometry, but this can add to your simulation run time and require a lot of tuning to get working happily.

An alternative is to control the behaviour of the latched component directly using motions that are triggered by the use of Sensors – detecting when the event occurs using a measure and then altering the connectivity of the model to reflect the new configuration with the latch engaged. 

This simple example illustrates how the user sets up this type of simulation ….
