Altair’s MotionSolve is a powerful multi-body solution to help simulate mechatronic systems. Integration with solidThinking Activate allows a user to model control systems, actuators and sensors in a convenient block diagram environment while coupled with MotionSolve via co-simulation. Models in MotionSolve can be linearized for classic control system design, and its powerful non-linear capabilities helps you model critical effects, ranging from friction, to component flexibility, to contact between colliding bodies. Additional capabilities for integration with Fortran/C/Python, and support for Modelica and Functional Mock-up Interface standards allows different domains and third-party tools to be used as needed. Finally, integration with other HyperWorks tools allow you to drive your simulations with a model-based design approach.
