LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 10, 2001--Structural Research & Analysis Corp. (SRAC), developer of COSMOS/ design analysis products, and Mechanical Dynamics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDII - news), developer of Dynamic Designer/Motion, today announced the release of COSMOS/Motion, a new mechanical design simulation software based on Dynamic Designer/Motion and powered by ADAMS motion technology.
Fully embedded inside the CAD interface, COSMOS/Motion provides 3D dynamic simulation capabilities, allowing users to see and study the realistic functional behavior of their CAD mechanical assemblies in motion. COSMOS/Motion can be used to detect moving interferences between CAD assembly components, show effects of forces and collisions between parts, and automatically output load data to COSMOS/Works and COSMOS/DesignSTAR.
"We are pleased to expand our long-standing relationship with MDI with the release of the COSMOS/Motion product," said Barbara Guerra, president and CEO of SRAC. "COSMOS/Motion combined with COSMOS/Works and COSMOS/DesignSTAR will help integrate the worlds of mechanical design, motion simulation, and structural analysis even more tightly than before."
"This single-window integration of Motion and Structural analysis with CAD creates a unique synergy between the three products, setting new standards for ease of use," said Alan Wegienka, vice president of Mechanical Dynamics' Design Technology Division. "COSMOS/Motion automatically interfaces with COSMOS/Works and COSMOS/DesignSTAR, allowing CAD users to perform both analysis and motion simulation on their models within the same environment."
COSMOS/Motion is currently available for SolidWorks and can be purchased through one of over 300 COSMOS/Works resellers worldwide.
About Mechanical Dynamics
Mechanical Dynamics' Design Technologies Division provides mechanical design simulation software for use within the leading computer-aided design (CAD) environments. The division's Dynamic Designer products are built upon Mechanical Dynamics' ADAMS® dynamic solution engine, the world's most widely used mechanical system simulation software. Engineering teams from nearly every manufacturing industry today use ADAMS to build and test functional virtual prototypes of their mechanical system designs. Using ADAMS can help minimize the need for physical testing, allowing companies to save time, cut costs, and reduce risk in product development.
