The Advanced Articulation module is designed to allow users to model the vehicle behaviour of articulated units. FARO articulation tools give users the ability to articulate any 3D models in the program and includes off-tracking. Over and above the included articulation tools, the Advanced Articulation module allows articulated models to follow generated three-dimensional terrain.
Off-tracking is the difference in the paths followed by the frontmost and rearmost axles of a vehicle (i.e. how far the rearmost axle tracks inside or outside the frontmost axle around a curve). The FARO HD articulation system includes off-tracking and displays the sweep angle paths. Click here to read a white paper regarding simulated off-tracking in FARO HD.
