Welcome to the DMU Navigator User's Guide!
This overview provides the following information:
DMU Navigator Version 5 addresses Digital Mock-Up (DMU) process centric design and review requirements of the extended enterprise. It offers a scalable solution capable of handling digital mock-ups of all sizes, ranging from consumer goods to very large automotive, aerospace, plant, ship and heavy machinery mock-ups.
Available on both UNIX and Windows environments, DMU Navigator is built to be totally compliant with Windows presentation standards.
DMU Navigator Version 5 comprises the following main applications:
The above applications are delivered as totally interoperable workbenches. From a user interface standpoint, switching from one to another is completely transparent and done in a context-sensitive fashion. In addition, to these workbenches, DMU Navigator is an open solution which offers:
Offers motion simulation capabilities. Kinematics Simulator can be cooperatively used with other current or future companion products of the DMU Navigator next generation such as DMU Fitting Simulator and DMU Space Analysis.
Allows the user to define and simulate assembly and disassembly procedures thereby validating product assembly and maintenance at the design stage. Fitting Simulator can be cooperatively used with other current or future companion products of the DMU Navigator next generation such as Kinematics Simulator and Space Analysis.
Offers advanced interference analysis, sectioning and measurement capabilities. Space Analysis can be cooperatively used with other current or future companion products of the DMU Navigator next generation such as DMU Kinematics Simulator and Fitting Simulator.
Improves user's productivity by computing an optimized representation of data for mockup verification in the context of the immersive and collaborative design review environment of the full digital mockup.
To get the most out of this guide, it is suggested that you start by doing the step-by-step Getting Started tutorial.
You should then move on to the User Tasks section.
The Customizing section, which explains how to configure options, will also certainly prove useful.
To perform the scenarios, you will be using sample documents contained in
folders, where "X2" is either C2 (for a CATIA product), D2 (for a DELMIA
product) or E2 (for an ENOVIA product). For more information about sample
Accessing Sample Documents in the Infrastructure User's Guide.
Prior to reading this book, we recommend that you read the Infrastructure User's Guide.
Note: You can start a DMU Navigator session by entering the command dmu (Windows) or DMU (UNIX). This starts the default DMU Navigator Version 5 environment.
You may also like to read the following complementary product guides, for which the appropriate license is required.
