Working Model is a powerful, engineering tool for statics, dynamics, mechatronics, biomechanics, design, vibrations, and controls. A diverse set of drawing and mathematical tools enable students, educators, and engineers to rapidly build complex models simulating the physical world. Never before has it been so easy to set up an experiment and explore “what-if” scenarios. Working Model makes it possible to visualize scientific and engineering concepts taught in the classroom, making course material more relevant and enjoyable. Further enhancing the interactive student-teacher experience, Working Model provides tools to design, test, refine, and verify mechanical, biomechanical, and structural assemblies.
