You Ask, We Answer

Why Simulation is Needed?

  • Producing realistic motion.
  • It is introduced to help students of all disciplines of engineering that applies the principles of engineering, physics, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems, which involves the production and usage of mechanical power.
  • You can use SimLab Composer to model the dynamic behaviors of objects in 3-D space.

Use Cased of Simulation

  • Prototypes testing and simulation by engineers.
  • Virtual applications for engineering students.
  • Educational (schools and universities).

How Simulation can be Done?

  • Using the Simulation Workbench in SimLab Composer.
  • In SimLab Composer, every simulation case requires creating solids and Links (optional). A Link defines the relationship of two solids to each other. Consider these prerequisites when you start every simulation project.

Why Go with SimLab Composer?

  • Engineering quality physics simulation with easy to use work-flow for mechanical systems.
  • SimLab Composer significantly adds a powerful tool for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools.
  • SimLab Composer can be used as a computer-aided engineering tool along with an understanding of the core concepts and principles of engineering, what makes us to consider it as a significant step in the field of education and industry.
  • It is designed in such a way that helps you easily create and simulate complex mechanisms which can be imported from various file formats supported by SimLab Composer.
  • Enables you to define systems from polygonal and analytical models, add constraints, actuators and springs, run simulations, and create plots to view the results of the simulation.
  • With three complete solvers (Projected SSOR, Projected MINRES, and DEM), SimLab Composer help you create sophisticated believable mechanical simulations.
  • Different types of Links, also known as joints, which can be created between two solids. It is a relationship that is enforced between two bodies so that they can only have certain positions and orientations relative to each other. Joints types, supported by SimLab Composer's simulation engine, are: Fixed, Revolute, Prismatic, Spherical, Cylindrical, Spring, Force and Torque.
  • Settable properties for solids, links, and simulation environment.
  • Automatic detection for solids from original geometries.
  • Advanced parameters for simulation engine.
  • Fast and accurate results.
  • Interactive Simulation.
  • Greater controller for simulation using game controllers.

Get in Simulation Fast with Various Ready-Made Models

The Models Library acts as a container for pre-installed simulation models that come with the Simulation Edition of SimLab Composer, distributed into three groups: Basic Physics Experiments, General, and Collision. As a start point, you can take a preview of what SimLab Simulation is capable of by start running the provided models.
