INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMS - PER SEAT

PACKAGES - SAVE $1000 PER SEAT

Dynacam 10 - $3,000

Dynacam 10 offers a full suite of cam design tools. It allows users to solve kinematic and dynamic equations for cam-follower systems and calculates dynamic force, stress, and torque data. Cam profiles created by Dynacam 10 can be exported to CAD packages. Dynacam is used to design commercial cams by many companies around the world and is the only commercially available cam design program that will create custom polynomial and B-spline cam functions.

 


 

Dynacam 10 Plus - $3,500

Dynacam 10 Plus offers all the features of Dynacam and adds the ability to create and analyze cam-driven fourbar and sixbar linkage follower trains. It exports linkage geometry and cam driving data to program LINKAGES for further analysis. Calculates the cam profile needed to apply the desired cam functions to the linkage end effecter. Imports profile data from an existing cam and reverse engineers its functions.

 


 

Linkages - $2,500 for the complete package

Program Linkages provides the ability to design and analyze Fourbar, Fivebar, Sixbar, and Slider linkages and Engines in one comprehensive package or with the subparts licensed individually, or in combination. It will calculate kinematic and dynamic parameters for all of these linkage designs. The user can calculate these parameters by inputting the link lengths and coupler point location. The linkage is drawn and animated and its coupler curve shown. All calculated data can be plotted, printed, and exported to a spreadsheet. Both pin-jointed fourbar and fourbar slider linkages can be designed and can be driven by a constant velocity motor, a variable velocity servomotor, or a programmed cam designed in Dynacam 10 Plus. The same kind of driving motivation can be applied to Watts II or Stephenson's III sixbar, and Watts II sixbar-slider linkages within the Linkages program. Used in combination with program Dynacam 10 Plus, cam-driven fourbar and sixbar pure linkages and slider linkages can be created and analyzed kinematically and dynamically. A new version of Program Engine (see below) is now built into Linkages and is available at the price indicated below.

Individual modules can be licensed on the following schedule:

Fourbar                           $500

Fivebar                            $500

Sixbar                             $500

Slider                              $500

Cam Driven Linkages  $500

Engine                          $1000

All modules active   $2500 (a saving of $1000 over individual prices)

 


 

Engine - $1,000

Engine gives users with the tools to solve kinematic and dynamic equations necessary to design any slider-crank based internal combustion engine or motor driven compressor. The program includes many built-in examples of standard engine configurations and animations of engines. Many companies worldwide use program Engine. Note that Engine is now part of the Linkage Suite. This will take you to the page to buy Linkages, just select the Engine Module.

Matrix - $5.00

Matrix is a general linear system solver that solves up to 20 linear equations through the on-screen input of the matrix of equation coefficients and a vector of constant terms. The program uses a modified Gauss-Jordan algorithm with partial pivoting to solve the equation set.
