CoreTechnologies digital-mock-up (DMU) toolCoreTechnologies says it has developed a new digital-mock-up (DMU) tool for machine and plant engineering. This module for the 3D_Evolution series for collision testing is specifically tailored to machine and plant engineering needs, claims the company.

The collision calculation takes place on the exact B-Rep descriptions, so that a precise distinction can be made between contact and penetration and the tool will only indicate collisions that are actually present in reality. The company says the collisions found can be opened directly from a list in the 3D viewer, where the collision areas are marked by curves and clearly displayed.
