An Age of Advanced Design

Mechanical systems and mobile robotics are becoming increasingly sophisticated with the introduction of smart systems such as high resolution sensors and machine learning algorithms—making them more challenging, costly, and time-consuming to physically prototype, test, and eventually deploy. 

The Power of Vortex Studio

With products and processes being reimagined as task-oriented systems, it is critical for the human-machine interaction to remain part of the design cycle.

Vortex Studio is CM Labs’ advanced suite of real-time simulation and visualization software, a platform for fast-paced, user-centric mechanical prototyping and streamlined deployment of immersive virtual experiences for enhanced testing, training and customer engagement.

Virtual Prototyping

The engineering process is continually moving from design and development to integration and deployment through a series of prototypes and tests.

Vortex Studio is an effective tool for systems design, decoupling prototypes from physical hardware, allowing for quick virtual validation of design assumptions and verification of solutions.

Operations Planning

Operations Planning

Increasing mechanical complexity means that operations carry exponential levels of risk—some of which are dangerous or impossible for physical testing (deep sea, outer space, contaminated areas).

Before you launch your operation, Vortex Studio allows for the development of scenarios that can test for flaws, delays, and complete “roadblocks”—de-risking and mitigating points of failure.

In-The-Loop Testing

Testing in live operating environments is a challenging and costly endeavour, increased when adding advanced control systems. Similarly, the human-machine connection needs to be validated at every stage, from initial design to the integration of ergonomic solutions.

Vortex Studio lets you test new systems and controls in-the-loop by integrating hardware, software, and HMI control systems into the virtual machine for deployment in complex operating scenarios.

Product-specific Training

Those who interact with both traditional and next-generation equipment need to be trained in ways that are applicable and transferable to real-world working conditions.
Machinery engineered in Vortex Studio can be easily deployed into hyper-realistic scenarios, providing a training tool that is both visually appealing and valuable for long-term skills development.

Virtual Customer Experiences

Presenting new technologies in a virtual environment lets you show customers the nuanced advantages of your product, in an environment more applicable than a showroom.

Vortex Studio allows sales and marketing teams to simulate an on-machine experience to demonstrate the benefits of novel technologies through fully integrated visuals, sound and motion.

Build on an Integrated Platform

Vortex Studio has been designed to provide a fully-integrated, centralized environment for the development of real-time simulations.

Working in conjunction with other software suites through a powerful C++ based API and a growing library of plugins, Vortex Studio fluidly enhances the overall mechatronic design process.


Innovate Faster with Professional Services

CM Labs’ professional services lets you accelerate your integration of Vortex Studio, improve user onboarding and reduce the time required to embed within your enterprise.
