With the advent of CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) software, the development of products has been more efficient and less costly for industries. With increasingly user-friendly interfaces and sometimes an environment that unites 3D modeling and physical event simulations, engineers have the tools to work with more complex geometry objects and understand the physical behavior of these objects in situations of static and dynamic loads, impacts, vibrations and fluid flow.
Without the need to manufacture proof bodies, engineers can predict design failures and deformations in extreme cases, promote geometry optimization, mass reduction, calculate safety factor, temperature influence and select the best material for different applications.
In the robotics industry, this is also true. With the possibility of simulating the robot movement computationally, collecting data such as reactions and accelerations and using this data to verify the behavior of bases and structures, companies have the possibility of delivering increasingly safe and reliable solutions to the customer – reducing the time and cost of development.
