An Onshape CAD assembly is imported into Simscape Multibody™ for dynamic simulation. From within MATLAB®, files describing the mechanical design and geometry are downloaded from the cloud. This includes geometry, mass, inertia, and joints. The Simscape Multibody model is automatically assembled in a Simulink® block diagram, which can be extended with additional physical effects using Simscape™. During dynamic simulation, a three-dimensional visualization of the mechanical system is created that you can view from multiple viewpoints.
