Geometry, material, loads, motion, and actuation impact design choices for control systems, microprocessor,
and power requirements for ``smart'' mechanical systems. The CAD-to-Chip workflow makes it easy to:
- Get CAD geometry, connectivity, and mass/inertia properties from widely-used applications such as
SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor, SpaceClaim, Geomagic, Catia, Unigraphics, Creo/Elements and
file formats such as STEP, IGES, VDA-FS, Parasolids, ACIS, STL.
- Add motion, actuation, joints, and formulas. Simulate with existing geometry, or modify or create new models.
Write fast compact .m files.
- Write highly-efficient, compact, symbolically-optimized code for Mathworks tools and microprocessors.
Enable inverse/forward kinematics, path planning, and feed-forward control systems design.
- Speed your mechanical design to hardware implementation: From CAD-to-Chip™.
