"Rather than seeking to simply avoid problems, by using tolerance-based optimization early in the product development process, well up-front of traditional CAD, we're able to use Enventive to target and achieve optimized design solutions and aggressively establish competitive product offerings. " - Yves Le Pottier, Electrical Device Supplier

    “For mechanisms and tolerance-in-motion, Enventive can’t be beat.” – Jeff Gabalski, BAE Industries

    Because of the innate kinematic modeling capabilities in Enventive® software, users can step a mechanism through its complete range of motion while recording results to the embedded Excel spreadsheet—all at the push of a button. During motion simulation, users can also run tolerance analysis (Tolerance-in-Motion™) to plot the variation across the range of motion and as part of optimization.

    The kinematic modeling capabilities in Enventive software were used to study the variation in force as the striker is pulled from the clip.

    • You can see the force change as the striker is pulled from the clip.
    • Variation in Pull Force is plotted over the range of motion.
