NexGen Ergonomics Announces HumanCAD® Version 2.0 with CADExchange™ and ErgoTools™

Montreal, October 11, 2012 -- NexGen is pleased to announce the release of HumanCAD 2.0, our next generation digital human modeling platform. HumanCAD 2.0's new human modeling software architecture includes a more intuitive interface, a plugin system, new inverse kinematics, and more. The new HumanCAD platform demonstrates our continued innovation that started in 1990 with ManneQuin, the world's first PC based human modeling solution. The ManneQuin/HumanCAD series of human modeling solutions enjoys the largest customer base in the world with thousands of users worldwide.

HumanCAD 2.0 is a human modeling solution that creates digital humans in a three-dimensional environment in which a variety of ergonomic and human factor analysis can be performed. HumanCAD 2.0 aids users with the design of products and workplaces by determining what humans of different sizes can see, reach, or lift.

HumanCAD 2.0's ergonomic evaluation tools provide data on potential injury risk and postural analysis. Other human factor tools aid in the determination of reach, vision, comfort and fit requirements.

Release 2.0 includes:

  • Easy posing of mannequins with forward and inverse kinematics
  • Dynamic distances and angles
  • Vision analysis
  • Reach analysis
  • A variety of libraries and databases

HumanCAD digital human modeling technology is an important tool in determining the human fit of products and workplaces before they are built. Leading manufacturing corporations, product design companies, government organizations, forensic consultants and universities have purchased our digital human modeling solutions.

NexGen is the leading developer and distributor of software and instrumentation for ergonomic and biomechanical job analyses, design and research. These include a variety of products for performing biomechanical, 3D digital human modeling, video analysis, motion capture systems, force measurement, human vibration analysis, sEMG and physiological measurement, data acquisition, as well as many others.
