PROPOSAL FOR A GUIDELINE TO INTEGRATE KINEMATICS WITHIN LIGHTWEIGHT FORMATS
Over the past years, we have been engaged in defining requirements towards application of lightweight data formats in the product lifecycle. As of today, formats like JT do not provide containers to store joints, fixes and relevant attributes, all of which are used e.g. in multibody-simulation (MBS) and installation feasibility analysis. We present a guideline and implementation that maps such data in the product structure of these formats. We have then exported new contents to Physical Modelling XML as an intermediate solution to bridge from CAD to CAE, giving an exemplary proof of concept.
