DMU Kinematics Simulator is an independent CAD product dedicated to simulating assembly motions. It addresses the design review environment of digital mock-ups (DMU) and can handle a wide range of productsfrom consumer goods to very large automotive or aerospace projects as well as plants, ships and heavy machinery. DMU Kinematics Simulator is a dedicated DMU Navigator workbench and is available on both UNIX and Windows NT environments. This guide is organized as follows: Getting Started Provides a scenario allowing you to get acquainted with the product. Basic Tasks Provides a step-by-step guide forusing DMU Kinematics Simulator. Useful tips are given for getting the most out of the product. Advanced Tasks Provides a step-by-step guide for using DMU Kinematics Simulator along with complementary DMU Navigator products. Workbench Description Describes menu commands and workbench toolbars that are useful for DMU Kinematics Simulator. Glossary Provides definitions of terms that are specific toDMU Kinematics Simulator. DMU Kinematics Simulator Version 5 makes use of CATIA Version 4 multi-model sessions that have been prepared with one or more kinematic mechanisms. This preparation task is described in the Basic User Tasks section of this guide.
Using This Guide
This guide is intended for the user who needs to quickly become familiar with ENOVIA-DMU Kinematics Simulator. The usershould be familiar with basic ENOVIA-DMU Navigator Version 5 concepts such as document windows, standard and view toolbars. To get the most out of this guide, we suggest you start reading and performing the step-by-step tutorials "Getting Started". The next sections present main capabilities in the form of user's tasks. It may be a good idea to take a look at the section describing the menus andtoolbars.
