Mechanical Engineering Design Automation Workbench

GrafiCalc® is breakthrough software that enables users to conceptualize, analyze, and solve a wide range of mechanical engineering design challenges with unprecedented ease, speed, and accuracy while making informed decisions in real time.

That is possible because in GrafiCalc you can simply point & click to associate geometry and "smart" calculations in the same worksheet to define flexible solution models that encapsulate the functional intents of your design challenge. Then you can interactively substitute critical design parameters to ask and receive instantaneous engineering decision-support information that helps you to select the best possible solution.

GrafiCalc is must-have software for rapid analysis and validation of engineering alternatives in the early stages of design when you have the most questions and the minimum information while conflicts are the easiest to detect and the least expensive to fix. Net results become the foundation for developing higher quality innovative products in CAD that can be manufactured cost-effectively to perform as expected the very first time.

GrafiCalc can be used standalone and in conjunction with Microsoft Office as well as all popular CAD applications on any computer running Vista, XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

GrafiCalc Key Benefits

  • Simulate "live" calculations The seamless fusion between parametric geometry and automated graphical calculations in GrafiCalc virtually eliminates tedious mathematical calculations and equations solving from the mechanical engineering design process. View Examples (1:11 minutes)
  • Goal seek geometry In GrafiCalc you can automatically “back solve” design challenges that benefit from optimization against any shape, position, or fit related design criteria. View Examples (1:52 minutes)
  • Solve mechanism and machinery design challenges GrafiCalc can help you to simulate and solve virtually any imaginable design challenge involving planar motion. View Examples (1:20 minutes)
  • Validate tolerances and producibility In GrafiCalc you can simulate the effect of manufacturing tolerances to mediate upfront between quality goals and process capabilities. View Examples (0:43 minutes)
  • Reuse and share solution templates Intellectual property and validated “electronic” prototypes created in GrafiCalc can be reused and shared without re-inventing the wheel every time. View Examples (0:45 minutes)

User Success

"We used GrafiCalc in the conceptual design stage to develop the equations for linear motors that drive food-processing machinery. Information received from GrafiCalc immensely helped us to design the optimal machine using SolidWorks."

Robert Brandt

"As a consulting engineer using AutoDesk Inventor I find GrafiCalc an invaluable contributor to my practice providing machine design and product development services to clients. Anyone involved in tracking complex machine movement or forces or a myriad of other engineering tasks would enjoy a great advantage by employing the power of GrafiCalc."

Ralph Bennett
R. Bennett LLC, USA

"GrafiCalc has saved us considerable time in the modeling and optimization of the geometry used in our positive displacement machinery. What we used to do with geometric data from our CAD system and numerical data from our spreadsheet models is now entirely done within GrafiCalc at a fraction of the time that it used to take. Consider me a satisfied customer!"
