Engineers are faced with an ever-increasing demand for more complex products, quicker delivery, and greater levels of function of each product they design,” said Shyamal Roy, founder of Geomate Co. “These pressures raise the stakes of getting design and manufacturing right the first time.”
With GrafiCalc Expert 2008, though, costly “build-test-fix” procedures can be reduced for faster time to market with higher-quality designs. This software combines the disciplines of sketching, calculations, behavioral modeling, motion simulation, and tolerance allocation and analysis in a single application. It features function-modeling wizards that help you quickly create digital prototypes of complex products for evaluation and confirmation of critical design assumptions and tolerances – before committing to expensive modeling and manufacturing resources.
You will be able to automate “what if” analyses of critical engineering parameters, mechanism concepts at the system level, manufacturing options, tolerance allocation options, designs that satisfy stated product behavior, and transient data collection for external analysis. You can also create a calculation knowledge base for reuse and sharing, leverage Excel and CAD, mediate between design and manufacturing tolerance conflicts, and reduce the number of physical prototypes.
