Find the right product for your application
Whether you’re looking for a tool to quickly design and present production solutions, or a platform to power your offline programming applications, we’ve got you covered.
The Visual Components platform was designed to support advanced 3D manufacturing simulation applications. The physics behavior, powered by the NVIDIA PhysX engine, allows you to simulate and visualize functionality affected by physical forces, such as collisions, gravity, and material properties.
Visual Components was developed to take full advantage of the 64-bit Windows environment. This means better graphics, faster loading times, and a much smoother user experience. Navigating large layouts is fluid. Memory management is constantly being optimized to improve simulation performance. The CAD converter has been optimized to import geometries into the Visual Components 3D world quickly.
Visual Components includes several rendering modes, helping you see more details and features and providing a richer and more immersive viewing experience. With advanced lighting and shading models and the ability to view material textures, models in the 3D world look realistic and pictures and videos exported from the platform are marketing-grade. The x-ray mode helps with identifying root causes and issues when you’re designing new components, configuring layouts, and analyzing collisions.
Case Study - FiRAC
"Visual Components is so versatile that it was very easy to implement the different configurations and view their effect on the cycle time. Once we found the best simulation, we were able to edit a video of the process and provide quantified and visual reasoning to support our final solution."
