Products with man-machine interfaces such as prostheses, fitness machines, and exoskeletons require significant testing in physical labs to meet the high requirements for function, comfort, and safety. The AnyBody Modeling System enables users to shortcut this process by conducting virtual musculoskeletal modeling tests of designs. The effort needed for this analysis is greatly reduced with the integrated add-in to convert CAD models into AnyBody models.
SolidWorks2AnyBody is an add-in for SolidWorks. The tool translates SolidWorks CAD models into corresponding AnyScript models, including all mass properties, mate relationships, and color information of the different parts.
Small changes during the design process can be explored quickly and iteratively with respect to its affect on the musculoskeletal system. The AnyBody Modeling System provides detailed information on loading and activations of individual muscles, joint reaction forces throughout the entire body, or reactions on a man-machine interface level.
The kinematic connections (constraints) between the human AnyBody model and your assembly model are defined as follows:
