Autodesk has released Autodesk ForceEffect Motion, a mobile simulation app for developing and testing mechanical systems with moving parts (scissor lift, windshield wipers, automobile engine, robotics, etc.). The app is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
ForceEffect Motion expands the Autodesk portfolio of mobile simulation apps, which also includes Autodesk ForceEffect, a simulation app that lets users calculate forces on a static object (building, bridge, furniture, machine, etc).
Users start by importing an existing image or creating a freehand sketch and adding functional mechanical joints, actuators, constraints and supports. Real-time solving capabilities provide immediate feedback on the system’s performance, which users can then print, email or view as a results report on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or any other device with an HTML-enabled browser.
Autodesk ForceEffect Motion also features integration with Autodesk 360, a cloud-based storage and collaboration platform.
