Analytix is a sophisticated mechanism design-and-analysis software package for the PC that puts you, the engineer, back in control of the creative process.
By automating tedious, error-prone number-crunching analysis and giving you the instant visual feedback you need to do something more satisfying--improve your design.
With Analytix, there's no need to enter long, involved formulas to analyze your designs. Kinematic equations are embedded in the software. So, in essence, the math is done for you. Instantly. And accurately. Full kinematic, inverse dynamic and force analysis. It even does the analysis you may not have had the time or luxury to get to. Such as a statistical or minimum/maximum tolerance stack-up on your design. Or force analysis for every possible scenario, instead of what you think (or hope) is the worst case.
It's simple. All you have to do is quickly sketch your geometry in a functional point-to-point centerline format, use your mouse to click on a driving angle or actuator, assign values (for velocity, acceleration, masses, moments of inertia, etc.), then click on any other point or line to see resultant conditions. Your analysis is complete.
Suppose you don't get the results you'd envisioned. No problem. With Analytix, you can change any dimension on your design and get updated velocity and acceleration information automatically and instantly. Without having to reprogram or modify your equations of motion. Analytix is so quick and easy to use, you'll even have time to explore entirely new design options and still meet or beat your project schedule.
