Visualize | Analyze | Optimize your CAD designs in MATLAB

The CAPRI to MATLAB® Connector lowers the barrier for using CAD models for physics-based modeling and simulation tasks in MATLAB®.

It eliminates CAD rework and over-simplified representations that could result in errors between the real design intent and representations that you create in MATLAB®.

Introduce real CAD models early into your MATLAB® workflows to shorten product development cycles, save time, and cost.

Feature Overview

  • MATLAB® users can work with CAD models in their M-Scripts,

  • Query the geometry details such number of bodies, mass properties and other mechanical details,

  • Visualize CAD parts and assemblies,

  • Extract discrete representation for 1D, 2D, and 3D analyses,

  • Perform geometric operations such extracting 2D cross sections and details required for preliminary and conceptual analysis,

  • Drive the design intent such as features and parameters for DOE and optimization.
