Features

General Features
  • All of the documentation within the application is hyperlinked
  • Reference examples in the application use a new "Help Model" system so that many examples are given in the context of a single Help Model
  • The package fully supports Mathematica's expression compilation capabilities
  • The forward dynamics module integrates in 3D angular space for improved performance and accuracy
  • Generalized coordinate support is fully integrated in the core package
  • Many 3D angular constraints result in simpler symbolic expressions
  • Utilities support vector algebra in Euler parameter space
  • The package provides enhanced 3D graphics objects with elliptical cubic sections
  • The gear constraints provide flexibility for modeling abstract gear trains
  • All 3D rotations can be generally specified by angle-axis, Euler parameters, or virtual rotation vector
