Design and simulate the motion of virtually any mechanism and linkage with MechDesigner Simulation Software. 

Machine, mechanism and linkage motion simulation software capabilities should include:

  • Add Parts and Pin, Sliding and Ball Joints to design all useful 2D and 3D mechanisms and linkages
  • Add Belts, Pulley, Gears, Springs to simulate real machines.
  • No limit to the number of mechanisms [and cams] - MechDesigner will model machines
  • Add any number of mechanisms to any number of planes, and even to planes that are already moving, for full 3D mechanism and motion simulation,
  • No limit to the number of motions you can design for each motion axis
  • At any time, just click for 'instant play' to simulate and continuously repeat the motion cycle
  • 'Jog' and 'Micro-Jog' all of the mechanism together with even tiny machine steps, to really scrutinize the interactions between all of the mechanisms.
  • Scrutinize the kinematic data of all machine parts, dynamically and at any machine angle.
  • Scrutinize the forces and reactions forces of all machine parts, dynamically and at any machine angle.
  • Edit motions and mechanisms, on-the-fly, even as you cycle your simulation, to continuously improve your design.
  • At any time, save your design to a video as a record of the simulation.

Watch our video to understand how MechDesigner can help you design, simulate and improve virtually any mechanism and linkage.

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.
