SMT Releases MASTA 11
April 14, 2021—
SMT is pleased to introduce asymmetric gear modeling, analysis and optimization into MASTA.
MASTA 11 from SMT introduces brand-new modeling and analysis capabilities from traditional heavy industry to cutting edge electrified propulsion and robotics. New features include:
MASTA 11’s new component palette serves to further simplify the modeling process with a new drag-and-drop modeling system.
SpaceClaim CAD Link:
MASTA’s new SpaceClaim CAD Link gives engineers the ability to pass data from CAD to MASTA with zero intermediary steps. Gone are the days of the compulsory mesh generation in a dedicated FE software package. MASTA can now link directly with ANSYS SpaceClaim, actively exchanging geometry at the click of a button and linking it to MASTA components using brand-new and in-built meshing capabilities. These same abilities are also utilized by the new STL Import tool. Simply import an STL format geometry file (easily generated in all major CAD packages), mesh and connect to your transmission model. All without leaving MASTA.
Asymmetric gears are an innovative advancement in gear technology showing various advantages over conventional symmetric gears where gear flanks are unevenly loaded. SMT is pleased to introduce asymmetric gear modeling, analysis and optimization into MASTA.
Advanced Time Stepping Analysis for Modulation (ATSAM):
The simulation of modulated dynamic response is an issue experienced by NVH engineers and has previously gone unresolved without expensive and time consuming MBD simulations. MASTA 11 is here to help, with the introduction of ATSAM.
Cycloidal drives are rapidly being adopted into a wide variety of transmission applications beyond their traditional robotic roots. MASTA 11 offers cycloidal drive modeling and simulation.
