Use motion simulation software—not intuition—to support your design decisions. The motion simulation feature uses the assembly constraints in your 3D model to identify relevant rigid bodies, generate correct motion joints, and compute dynamic behavior. This functionality can help you quickly understand how the design behaves, including the position, velocity, and acceleration of moving parts.
Inventor CAD simulation features include:
Increase the accuracy and reliability of your design stress analysis. Use integrated finite element analysis (FEA) to predict stress and deflection with accurate peak loads by transferring reaction forces from simulation time steps to stress analysis.
Fully integrated with Frame Generator, the Frame Analysis environment helps you simulate the performance of load-bearing frame models quickly and efficiently. After running the analysis, use the report generation tools to present your results and embed graphics and animation in your reports.
