Haption Interactive Fitting for Solidworks™

Based on Haption’s physics simulation technology IPSITM, IFS "Interactive Fitting for Solidworks" is a plug-in for the CAD software SolidworksTM 2009 and 2010 (32 bits and 64bits).

IFS is composed of one core platform and one add-on module:

  • IFS Core provides tools for creating an interactive physics simulation session, managing interaction devices, changing object properties, etc.
  • IFS Robotics complements IFS Core with functionalities to animate robots


IFS Core lets you:

  • Read the specification of the current assembly
  • Feel contact forces and gravity
  • Record, and Play a trajectoty of one object stored in an XML file
  • Control the precision down to sub-millimeter levels
  • Use any kind of haptic device (Virtuose, Inca, Able) and tracking system (ART, Motion Analysis, Vicon, Xsens), 6D USB mouse from 3Dconnexion

IFS Robotics lets you:

  • Add a robot to the assemby
  • Build a chain of robots
  • Extract the geometry of robot segments
  • Move a robot joint
  • Activate/deactivate collision management
  • Record the robot movements
