New Motion Simulation Features in 3D Motion Creator

In the domain of design and innovation, the ability to predict and test how a product will perform in real-world scenarios is invaluable. Michael Perez brings this point home in his latest blog, highlighting the transformative power of motion simulation in enhancing product design and customer experience. By leveraging the capabilities of 3D Motion Creator on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, designers can not only save costs and reduce their environmental footprint but also refine their products to perfection through comprehensive testing and iteration.

What's New in the February Update, R2024x FD01?

The latest update to 3D Motion Creator introduces a suite of features designed to deepen our understanding of design mechanisms, identify potential interferences with precision, and expand the horizons for what-if scenario exploration. These enhancements are not confined to an annual release, thanks to the browser-based nature of the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio, allowing for continuous innovation throughout the year.

  • Parameters and Formulas: This feature enables the experimentation with various what-if scenarios without the need to edit motion elements directly. By creating parameters and formulas, designers can easily adjust values to test different scenarios, offering a flexible approach to motion simulation.

  • Minimum Distance Probe: Provides visual feedback by animating the minimum distance between two groups of components during a simulation. This tool is invaluable for assessing potential issues in spatial relationships within a design.

  • Interference Probe Animation and 3D View: Building on the Interference Probe command introduced in the last update, this feature now includes an animation to visualise potential clashes between components, with clashing bodies highlighted in blue for easy identification.

  • Swept Volume and Geometric Trace: Offers enhanced control and accuracy for geometry positioning. Designers can choose how to store the resulting geometry from these features, ensuring precise positioning and reference.

Michael Perez's insights into the February update of 3D Motion Creator underscore the evolving landscape of design simulation. By integrating advanced motion simulation features, designers are equipped to delve deeper into the behaviour of their creations, ensuring not only a zero-defect prototype but also an optimised design that meets the highest standards of functionality and user experience.

For those intrigued by the endless possibilities these new features present, Michael encourages engagement through comments and discussions.
