Product Overview

IFC Human : Interactive Fitting for Catia Human module

IFC Human is an add-on workbench of IFC Core for realtime human simulation functionalities, IFC Human can animate in realtime the human Builder manikin in the Digital Mockup.

IFC Human lets you:

  • Transfer the geometry and kinematics of a V5 manikin to the physics simulation
  • Animate the V5 manikin in real-time
  • Attach haptic devices to the hands of the V5 manikin
  • Control all segments of the V5 manikin using a full-body tracking system: Animazoo, ART, Motion Analysis, Vicon, Xsens
  • Compute contact constraints in real-time
  • Control of the manikin's hands using instrumented gloves, such as CyberglovesTM II or FingerTrackingTM
  • Record the motion of the V5 manikin in real-time, and store it as an XML file
  • Replay the motion with collision cue.

IFC Human request, IFC Core prerequisite + HBR

Customer Benefits

Customer use the Digital Mockup to take quick the decision for any Human activities in product design:

Typical Scenario:

  • Assembly validation
  • Montage procedure
  • Validate Human constraint
  • Evaluate tooling
  • Human accessibility, reachability
  • Maintainability procedure

The time of validation the task is the time of doing the real task.

And we output data in catia (single posture)
