Bring your CAD models to life

Dynamics for SpaceClaim is a fully integrated add-in that extends the functionality of SpaceClaim with motion dynamics for multibody systems with joints and frictional contacts. For the first time, such technology has now been integrated with 3D geometry, providing engineers and designers with a tool where they can easily modify models and evaluate their designs in seconds using simulations with incomparable speed. Dynamics for SpaceClaim enables engineers to test and edit a model right in SpaceClaim, decreasing the time and money needed to prepare models for simulation and ultimately production.

Motion dynamics at your fingertips

Dynamics for SpaceClaim is an add-in for SpaceClaim, that equips the user with world-class multibody dynamics simulation capabilities. This add-in fuse super fast and accurate physics algorithms with an equally efficient and user friendly interface, creating an exceptionally interactive and powerful virtual prototyping environment.

1D, 2D, 3D, … What’s next? – Dynamics for SpaceClaim

On that note. Creating new competitive engineering products, requires an intelligent process. The essence of intelligence is the ability to keep as many viable options as possible open for as long as possible to ensure maximum agility when circumstances change. However, in engineering you can only keep your options open for so long. At some point, typically very soon, you need to move forward in the product development process and generate some income.

Now, does this make the product development process inherently… not very smart?

Well, the answer is yes. Unless you are somehow able to know the circumstances much better early on in the design process, while all of the viable options still are open.

This brings us to the entire purpose of Dynamics for SpaceClaim. By wrapping Algoryx Simulation’s pioneering multibody dynamics simulation technology in the most intuitive, interactive and responsive user interface, and injecting it into the core of the product development process, we make intelligence.

Hydraulic lift

New for Dynamics for SpaceClaim 1.3

This is an engineering application that illustrates how one can obtain the dynamic loads on static connections (welded and bolted joints, for instance) between structural members (frame and vertical beam). This scene also captures a situation where the lift tips over due to an accellerating motion accross a sloping floor and a subsequent collision.
