MotionDesigner: world-class motion-design software

MotionDesigner is our powerful motion-design and editing tool. With MotionDesigner, you can design all of the motions for a machine. Because it is integrated with MechDesigner, you can continuously review the performance outcome on a machine axis as you edit its motion.

Motion-Design optimization is an important task to complete if you want to get the best from your machine design. MotionDesigner gives you the best tools to not only edit each motion but also to watch your mechanisms update their motions, and cams to update their profiles, as the model cycles.

It is often not easy to optimize even one complex motion. Thus, it can be extremely difficult to optimize a number of motions for interacting axes, and all of the motions on a machine. By integrating motion-design with multi-axis mechanism design, you can continuously review the outcome of each motion edit on the interacting mechanism motion. The

MotionDesigner tools:

  • A complete set of 'Standard', or 'Traditional', motion-laws.
  • Motion-Laws that have been developed by PSMotion, which allow you to design the motions in a very flexible way.
  • Motion-Laws that let you edit the Position, Velocity, Acceleration and Jerk motion-values at the start and end of each segment.
  • No limit to the number of motion segments in each motion
  • No limit to the number of different motion designs
  • Import your own motion data file to create your own motion. Import:
    • Position Data, which MotionDesigner differentiates to show the Velocity and Acceleration graphs
    • Acceleration Data, which MotionDesigner integrates to give Velocity and Position graphs
  • Design a number of motions for one machine axis - for different products sizes, for example - and quickly change between.
  • Guarantee motion-continuity between segments for all motion-derivatives, or choose with motion-derivative to 'relax'
  • Allow you to be creative with your motion-design for even the most usual applications.
  • Create a Timing-Diagram of your set of motions
  • The output of each motion can be a function of:
    • machine angle
    • machine time
    • the motion of a machine part
    • and even the input from another motion.

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.
