DMU Kinematics

Duration: 1 Day

Current Class Schedule and Pricing

Learn how to create and simulate V5 mechanisms using CATIA products. This course begins with an overview of the mechanism design process, and then each step in the process is discussed in depth with the use of lectures and several hands-on exercises. This course also introduces the concept of converting assembly constraints into kinematic joints. Additionally, an introduction on converting V4 mechanism to V5 is provided. The course covers the 3D model method of creating kinematic assemblies.

Fundamental Topics:

  • Kinematic analysis process
  • Constraint-based joints
  • Curve/surface-based joints
  • Ratio-based joints
  • Compiling and replaying a simulation
  • Swept volumes
  • Traces
  • Sensors
  • Clash detection
  • Assembly constraint conversion
  • CATIA V4 mechanisms
  • Simulation with laws
