Discover Virtual Prototyping Using NI LabVIEW NI SoftMotion and SolidWorks


Engineers and scientists use virtual prototyping to design, optimize, validate, and visualize their machines digitally and evaluate different design concepts before incurring the cost of physical prototypes. Learn how to use NI SoftMotion for SolidWorks to drive the simulation within a SolidWorks 3D CAD model to simulate mechanical dynamics including mass and friction effects, cycle times, and individual component performance. See how these tools can help you improve the efficiency and performance of your machine design and lower the cost and risk of your development. Discover how to use the high-level motion functions provided by the LabVIEW NI SoftMotion Module to develop your motion profile from single-axis to complex-coordinated motion and how to connect this application to your 3D CAD model.
