The course covers the full range of simulation and analysis functionality available within the DMU Kinematic workbench allowing users to fully evaluate the performance of their mechanisms.


2 days

Course Objectives:

This course focuses on functionality delivered within the DMU Kinematics (KIN) workbench, which allows the user to build and simulate mechanisms within a CATIA assembly context. Delegates learn how to build functioning Kinematic mechanisms by adding mechanical joints defining the interaction between components and their associated degrees of freedom. These mechanisms are then “driven” by assigning inputs or commands to key components. The course includes a mixture of presentation and tutorial, enabling students to gain hands-on experience.

The course includes the following topics:

  • Mechanisms
  • Commands
  • Joint Types & Degrees of Freedom
  • Simulations
  • Creating Swept Volumes
  • Creating a Trace from a Moving Part
  • Clash Detection
  • Distance Analysis
  • Advanced Joints
  • Simulation with Commands
  • Simulation With Respect to Time
  • Speed and Acceleration
  • Simulation by Laws
  • Mechanism Dress-up
  • Mechanism Analysis
  • Kinematic Sequences

Who Should Attend?

Mechanical Design Engineers with a requirement for animation. CATIA V5 Fundamentals prerequisite.
