PTC Creo Mechanism Dynamics Extension allows you to virtually simulate real-world forces and analyze how your product will react to them. Analyze Dynamic Forces with a Powerful Prototyping Solution 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 real-world forces
With PTC Creo Mechanism Dynamics Extension, you can determine, on a desktop, how your design will react to dynamic forces such as gravity and friction. You can perform your tests virtually very early in the design phase when correcting problems is much less costly. 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
PTC Creo Mechanism Dynamics Extension takes advantage of the integrated toolset of PTC. This means there are no errors in data translation from one application to another. The graphical user interface is the same one used to design the product in PTC Creo. Furthermore, the model data is the same as PTC Creo, with no waste of time to translate data for analysis. After implementing engineering changes, you simply rerun the analysis, generating a higher quality model, faster.
