OpenMeca is based on the chronoengine library. The aim of openmeca is to provide a software for simulating mechanical systems easily. openmeca allow us to builds a 3D sketch, where the bonds are represented by symbols and gives a simple way to apply loading and boundary conditions. Thanks to numerical sensors, different kind of data (force, torque, displacement, velocity, etc.) could be extracted from the simulation.
A tutorial is available on YouTube here.
Simply download the installer here. To install it, if you are not familiar with .dmg files:
To launch OpenMeca, navigate to the Applications folder from the Finder, and double click the OpenMeca icon. Note that, the application is not code signed. If you are using a recent version of OS X, you may need to desactivate Gatekeeper in the System Preferences.
Simply download the installer here.
On a Debian based Linux distribution, simply run the following commands.
sudo apt-get install libqt5help5 libqt5svg5 libqt5opengl5 libqt5widgets5 libqt5gui5 libqt5xml5 libqt5core5a libboost-all-dev libqwt-qt5-6 libqglviewer2-qt5 cd /tmp/ && wget https://openmeca.site/site/dl/openmeca_2.x_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i openmeca_2.x_amd64.deb
Now, you can lauch openmeca by typing
openmeca in a terminal or by clicking the openmeca icon in the Education menu. To remove openmeca, simply enter the following command.
sudo dpkg -r openmeca
On a Debian based Linux distribution, simply enter the following terminal commands (and take a coffee).
sudo apt-get install build-essential git qtdeclarative5-dev qt5-default qttools5-dev-tools libqt5svg5-dev libqt5opengl5-dev qttools5-dev libboost-all-dev libqwt-headers libqwt-qt5-6 libqwt-qt5-dev libqglviewer-dev-qt5 git clone https://gitlab.com/damien.andre/openmeca.git cd ./openmeca && make ./SRC/OpenMeca/BUILD/openmeca
These commands do the following actions :
Note that :
sudo make install. By default openmeca is installed in the
sudo make uninstall.
OpenMeca is written in C++ and is based on the qt5, qwt, qglviewer, boost and the chronoengine C++ libraries. The graphical front-end is given thanks to the qt5, qglviewer and opengl libraries. The boost library is used to manage serialization (save and load procedures) and some boring stuffs (lexical_cast, bind, etc.). The chronoengine library is the physical engine of OpenMeca.
OpenMeca packages qglviewer, qwt, boost and chronoengine libraries. The chronoengine version used here is a custom version. So, you need to compile them before compiling openmeca. Note that openmeca is statically linked to these libraries. The aim of this design is to make easier the further deployment of openmeca.
The configuration files of openmeca are stored in the
