A subset of testing is mechanical analysis. This is an output of the CAD model that enables us to break down a product into its component parts and then reproduce the effect of applying different loads to those parts in a realistic computer environment. It enables us to performance test various componentry to see which ones will deform or break, including testing in extremely hot or cold environments.
By verifying whether the design is robust at this very early stage, you may save considerably on prototypes and further testing. Mechanical analysis can also be used to assess if the material selected is correct and help us to understand what would happen if different materials were used. This enables us to explore more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives.
The benefits of Procreate's side-by-side design
Once again the inherent benefits of Procreate being able to run both the aesthetic and mechanical design side-by-side ensures that the entire design process is able to respond very quickly to any changes that result from the testing and analysis.
