Leading Mechanism & Machine Design Software

Cam, Mechanism, and Motion Design are critical to machine capability and performance. To innovate competitively, design engineers need the tools with which they can make confident decisions - MechDesigner is one software tool that all multi-axis machine design engineers should have. With MechDesigner, engineers will be able to model the complete machine, optimize its motion-timing, review all kinematic-data, and design all cam-types. When the machine axes are running and interacting in the best possible way, they can export all cam-data for manufacture as well as make servo-motor and gearbox combinations for each axis.

MechDesigner encapsulates our experience in simulation software for packaging machine design. Supported by PSMotion's world-leading capabilities, MechDesigner can be used from the earliest design stage to improving the performance of 'retired' machine. You can even reverse-engineer existing machine designs and improve their performance through improved motion-design and cam-design. Its intuitive interface and its fast and efficient algorithms help you to quickly iterate and identify the best possible design options. Whether you want to optimize for machine speed, efficiency, reduced maintenance, or for fewer failures, MechDesigner has all the tools to quickly benchmark your design against all critical engineering design parameters.


MechDesigner is Machine CAD Software - for machines with many complex cam and mechanism designs.

No matter how complex your design, use MechDesigner to design all of the mechanisms and cams in one model.

With MechDesigner, you can continuously:


  • Review and plot multiple parameters over a complete machine cycle: transmission angles, pressure angle, maximum velocity and accelerations, contact stress, follower life, cam life, and much more.


  • Review each mechanism and material interaction in minute detail, with micro-machine steps, especially at those critical phases of the machine's operation.


  • After you have balanced all possible parameters, using our 'multi-axis cam and mechanism design for multi-axis machines' checklist you will also have access to our world-beating annual support. You will get a hotline [in UK office hours], to a massive amount of machine design and modeling experience. We will almost always spot an opportunity for further improvement.

When the machine model is running as you want, export all data for manufacture.

MechDesigner is much more than 'cam design software', it is 'cam, mechanism, motion design software WITH machine design experience'.

We guarantee MechDesigner CAD Software will quickly become a primary tool in your design process. You can model complete machines and simulate at realistic speeds or micro-step to really scrutinize every machine interaction, and even edit on-the-fly.

Mechanism Design Software

Mechanism Design Software must be able to design mechanisms as well as Cam Design and Motion Design. You can design any mechanism, which may include only parts and joints, but you can easily add servos, cams, gears [simple gears, racks, bevels], belts with pulleys, all with complex motions. There might be one input or many. The mechanism design can be planar or spatial. You can design all of the mechanisms in a machine at the same time so that you can see all of the important mechanism interactions. You can even add the packaging to the model and design it as a mechanism.

MotionDesigner: Motion Design for Machines and Mechanisms

Motion Design is integrated with MechDesigner as a standalone tool - which we call it MotionDeisgner. MotionDesigner is a powerful motion design editor. You can edit and simultaneously update the motions to the mechanism design and cam design in your MechDesigner model - on-the-fly. In this way, you can scrutinize your motion design as a graph in MotionDesigner, and simultaneously scrutinize the same motion moving in your MechDesigner model of your machine.

Kinematics Analysis and Simulation Software

Kinematic Analysis and Simulation is a key strength of MechDesigner Software. You can design, any mechanism using Inverse-Kinematics or Forward-Kinematics. MechDesigner has fast, closed-form algorithms, you will be amazed at how quickly you can innovate and watch a simulation cycling at machine-like speeds. Start your free 30-day trial today.
