Autodesk ForceEffect

Something that I just ran across and thought it would be neat if this could be incorporated inside Inventor.  Just to give a quick estimate of forces involved in a design.  I wanted to download this, but too bad its not available yet for an android.

 

Has anyone here tried it out?

 

Hopefully it will be soon.

I have it and Force Effect Motion (uses actuators) on my iPad, pretty nice actually.  I use it for field work with clients and then I take the DXF to AutoCAD or Inventor to start my kinematic linkages for their design.

They do. They have Inventor Simulation which is better. ForceEffect is like a Iphone verson of Working Model 2D. Still very cool.

Hi Kirk,

 

  Not that this helps much now, but we are actively looking into implementing the ForceEffect(s) for Android O/S.  This particular request is very high on our list, and we are listening for feedback (of course).

 

 Eventually, there might even be a version available that won't require a mobile device.

 

Best regards, -Hugh

I meant they had Simulation for Inventor, not android. Couldn't edit the post.

Just for you Kirk! :smileyhappy:

===== copy / pasted ========

The Force is Strong with AndroidTM!

With over 100,000 downloads on iOS devices, it’s clear that engineers and students have a sweet spot for Autodesk® ForceEffectTM software. The number one request since its launch on the iOS market has been “Release an AndroidTM version!” - we listened, and are pleased to announce we’re now bringing engineering to the point of the problem for those with an Android phone or tablet. 

For a limited time, download for FREE! ForceEffect allows you to engage with customers and prospects earlier than ever before!

=====================================

Best regards, -Hugh
