"Enventive has enabled our mechanisms design engineers to literally start thinking again in order to make the right decisions on their preliminary designs problems. This allows us to avoid costly late stage problems in our design and industrialization processes. " - Norbert Hertling, Lear Corporation Gmbh

Enventive software examples

  • Enventive software includes a wide range of geometric modeling, GD&T, equation solving, and design optimization tools. Combined geometric and mathematical modeling allows dimensions to be easily used in equations and for equations to drive dimensions.
  • Enventive models, supported by Smart Components™, capture both the form and function of parts and assemblies—not just geometry. These models help study geometry, forces, kinematic motion, and any parameter that can be defined by an equation.
  • Beyond traditional tolerance analysis, Enventive software helps to identify a wider range of parameters that are critical to the quality and reliability of a product. Built-in tolerance analysis tools can then be used to help minimize the effect of variation caused by each critical parameter, helping to improve product performance.
  • Enventive software makes it easier to design and optimize mechanisms, whether studying motion and its impact or performing travel and effort studies. Users can automatically step a mechanism through its complete range of motion, while concurrently running tolerance analysis to assess variation.
  • Enventive results are automatically written to an integrated Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet, providing a familiar view of the results for designers, systems engineers, mechanical engineers, manufacturing engineers, and engineering managers. Bi-directional associativity between Excel and Enventive software helps to more easily study “what if” scenarios and the effect of changes to critical parameters.
  • Removing the need for a detailed CAD model, Enventive software provides valuable insight during the earliest stages of the product development process. By focusing on both form and function from conception through manufacturing, companies gain a competitive advantage by bringing better products to market faster—and at lower cost.
