NexGen Ergonomics Announces HumanCAD® Version 3.0

Montreal, November 6, 2014 -- NexGen is pleased to announce the release of HumanCAD 3.0, our latest version in our next generation digital human modeling platform. HumanCAD 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 aids users with the design of products and workplaces by determining what humans of different sizes can see, reach, or lift.

New features in Version 3.0 include:

  • New child mannequin module with multiple skinning algorithms by date range
  • Improved IK (Inverse Kinematics) tools that allow the user to click on most mannequin extremities and a destination point to see if the mannequin can reach the destination
  • Customizable vision cones
  • New features for Advanced Feature Set add-on module (AFS):
    • Collision Detection
    • Advanced hand model
    • Comfort Zones
  • New Binocular vision

The first version of the ManneQuin/HumanCAD series of human modeling solutions was released in 1990. Since then thousands of users worldwide have used these solutions. HumanCAD's 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.
