Customer Profile: Design Simulation Technologies
Physics-Based Simulation Software
Design Simulation Technologies (DST) develops physics-based simulation software. The company’s products are used by engineering professionals to build and test virtual models of their mechanical designs, and by educators and students in the classroom to teach and learn about physics and engineering kinematics, dynamics, and machine design. With DST’s SimWise 4D, Working Model 2D, and Dynamic Designer products, users evaluate their designs’ performance, conducting complete, accurate simulations. They can quickly perform many “what-if” analyses, find and correct design problems, and refine and validate their designs without the need for physical prototypes. DST develops, markets, and supports these software tools for commercial and academic users worldwide. Select DST products are available from leading CAD suppliers and CAE resellers.
DST recently launched their new product SimWise 4D, a mechanical simulation product providing 3D kinematic and dynamic motion simulation integrated with Finite Element Analysis. SimWise 4D is created for mechanical designers and engineers who need to simulate the performance of their designs. While applicable to all mechanical industries, SimWise 4D has a clear focus on products consisting of moving mechanical assemblies. SimWise 4D helps designers and engineers obtain answers to fundamental questions about their designs, such as "Does it Work?" and "Will it Break?" It brings 3D dynamic motion simulation integrated in a single package plus tight connections to CAD systems to the engineer’s desktop in a product that does not require an engineering analyst to operate. The product’s Integrated Mechanical Design Simulation; 3D Dynamic Motion combined with FEA; tight integration with leading CAD systems; physics-based high definition animation; and link to control simulation products provide a complete mechanical simulation environment.
