Who's it for?

NX Motion offers multibody dynamics simulation capabilities that go beyond simple kinematics. Motion analysis calculates the reaction forces, torques, velocities, acceleration and more for mechanical systems. The integration of this motion analysis software with NX Motion lets you directly convert CAD geometry and assembly constraints into an accurate motion model, while the motion solver and robust post processing capabilities allow the study of a broad range of product behaviours. Motion Simulation is a CAE software application used to apply motion simulations to a mechanism model. Upon successful completion of this course students will understand how to apply and edit motion simulations, use motion simulations to analyse, troubleshoot and optimize a mechanism design.

Course Agenda:

  • Introduction and fundamental skills
  • Kinematic/dynamic simulations
  • Motion objects (links and joints) and motion drivers
  • Applied forces, torques, dampers, springs, bushings, and contacts
  • Articulation and animation
  • Range of motion analysis and interference checking
  • Analysis results, including graphing and spreadsheets
  • Advanced analysis, including flexible bodies and PMDC motors
