Let’s Learn Together: 3D Motion Creator Role

This post is a continuation in a series about simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and some of the roles you can find there. This week we are focusing on the 3D Motion Creator Role and how it provides users with easy-to-use functionality for kinematic and dynamic motion analysis of assemblies, delivering actionable results to enable design teams to verify product range of motions and optimize product design, from anywhere at any time.


Overview

3D Motion Creator delivers a robust set of motion simulation tools, within an intuitive, highly interactive, and tightly integrated motion to design an environment for a truly life-like experience. 3D Motion Creator provides users with easy-to-use functionality for kinematic and dynamic motion analysis of assemblies, delivering actionable results to enable design teams to verify product range of motions and optimize product design, from anywhere at any time.

3D Motion Creator is an easy-to-use, browser-based solution that offers kinematic and dynamic motion capabilities to evaluate and validate your design. Set up your motion analysis efficiently using intuitive tools and modeling elements. Built on the cloud- based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, 3D Motion Creator allows automated motion model generation based on 3D design and quick update of the model after design changes working seamlessly with the design-to-manufacturing, data management and collaboration solutions on the platform.

Key Capabilities

  • Quick kinematic assessment of your product based on automated model generation in intuitive the Kinematics Player tool
  • Work entirely in a web browser, giving you the freedom to simulate anytime, anywhere, with no need for installation
  • Utilize an easy-to-use environment to quickly enhance your model with dynamic capabilities like drivers and spring/damper
  • Rapidly update the model based on designs iterations and perform analysis using a world-class solver
  • Evaluate your results using 3D animation as well as 2D Plots built-in to the motion environment
  • Intuitive and streamlined assessment of complex mechanism dynamics using the Motion Manager tool
  • Save and share mechanism motion animation with your colleagues

Benefits

With 3D Motion Creator you can:

  • Quickly define, simulate and validate multiple mechanical designs at an early stage to drive product innovation
  • Rapidly evaluate what-if design scenarios
  • Understand the complete impact of product motion, with 3D animations and results plots

Highlights

  • Intuitive user experience that makes it easy to animate mechanisms
  • Access your content from anywhere via a web browser with an internet connection
  • Built in collaboration and revision management

What’s New

In R2021x FD07 & R2022x GA, 3D Motion Creator delivers:

  • 3D Contacts between components
  • Force and torque motion drivers
  • Spring elements
  • Share and play motion animations in 3DPlay
  • Import command now supports more file formats:
