CeRVIM Webinar: Creation of dynamic models of mechanisms using Siemens NX CAD software and simulating these models with MATLAB

The dynamic simulation of a mechanism from its initial CAD model has the potential to significantly accelerate research work by reducing the experimental workload. In this case, the Siemens NX CAD software has a very interesting simulation module which enables dynamic models to be exported to the MATLAB/Simulink environment.
This approach makes it possible to:

  • Simplify the creation of complex dynamic models (inertias, constraints, contacts, etc.)
  • Take advantage of the efficiency of Simulink to prototype control algorithms
  • Graphically present and analyze results

This webinar will present the complete process of dynamic co-simulation with NX and MATLAB, from the creation of the CAD model of the mechanism to the graphic animations and plotted results.

The presentation will be given in French and the slides will be in English.
