From integratedtolerance stackup analysis to “what if” structural tests, you’ll know how your design is going to perform long before you everbuild a physical prototype. you’ll also be able to assess how the parts will oscillate or move during operation and even whatthe environmental impact of a design will be over its life cycle—so you can fully optimize your models as you create them.
