Virtual Prototyping

Engineers and scientists use virtual prototyping to design, optimize, validate, and visualize their products digitally and evaluate different design concepts before incurring the cost of physical prototypes. NI SoftMotion for SolidWorks enables mechanical and control engineers to collaborate and gives them a way to assess the operation of moving parts. This enables them to visualize realistic machine operations, estimate the cycle time throughput, determine whether the product will fail and delivers important information about the dynamic behavior of the design.
