Connecting SolidWorks model with realtime measurements

Dear all!


To present my question I will simplify my example.

I will connect a sprocket on a step motor and measure acceleration with an accelerometer. The data will be captured by using either an Arduino or Raspberry pi sensor setup. The measurements will then be stored in a cloud-based environment or somehow similar and be send to the CAD model (that's the idea).

Basically what I would like to achieve is to:

- connect the movement of the step motor with the SW model (if the physical sprocket is spinning, so is the one in the CAD model),

- in case that the measurements identify a problem in the assembly, the critical/weak component would be somehow highlighted inside the CAD model.

Has anyone an idea how this could be done or if it is even possible? I am a confident SW user for 6 years, but I have never been involved in something like this.


Thank you for any given help!

Kind regards,
