ForceEffect is a mobile engineering app for simulating design concepts in the field or in the office. Unlike the traditional approach of using paper, pencil, and a calculator to develop equations for design options, Autodesk ForceEffect does all the simulation and engineering calculations for you right on your mobile device, helping you to quickly and easily simulate design options during the concept phase to determine the viability of a design.

 

The app is perfect for static systems analysis using free body diagrams:

  • Freehand sketching of elements and construction lines with snaps, constraints, and inferencing
  • Object dimensioning, global scaling, units, constraints
  • Import image as background, simple manipulation
  • Create joints (welded, pinned)
  • Break element at joints
  • Create supports (fixed, grounded, sliding)
  • Create loads (known, unknown, variable distributed) and moments
  • Add weight to individual elements
  • Compute reaction forces and moments for equilibrium and over-constrained systems
  • Toggle forces to show force vector components
  • Results reporting with picture, results, all equations
  • Save and load files from Autodesk Cloud
  • In app tutorials
