What is Mechanical?


  • Model linkages and mechanical assemblies
  • Use a large library of Joints and Constraints
  • Combine 3DCS traditional modeling with mechanical Joints and Constraints
  • Depict variation on kinematic assemblies through their range of motion
  • If available, utilize the cad system’s embedded Joints and Constraints
  • Use Kinematic Analysis
