Can a solidworks standard 2017 perform analysis of rotational force applied on a flywheel model? Not used it but I'd have thought the centrifugal load would be relevant to you:

I am currently working on a university assignment that involves doing a motion analysis on a Whitworth quick return mechanism that is used in a shaping machine, I have done mathematical analysis in order to obtain plots of the reciprocating rams displacement, velocity and acceleration, now I am looking to verify these results with a SolidWorks motion analysis study. I have created the simplified model pictured below and set up a motion analysis study in order to drive the system at a constant

I can't understand how the design study receives such an angle? Instead of 30 degrees it shows 1900 degrees! How?!

I have a ring that rotates about an axis (See .gif image). The motion profile is symmetric (same acceleration and deceleration). It simply accelerates to 360 deg/s and then decelerate back to 0 deg/s over the same time period. Screenshot1 shows power consumption results that make sense.

The scissor lift raises very fast for the first half then very slow on the last half. I need the platform on top to raise at an even speed the duration of the animation. Any suggestions would be amazing!

I made this quick model to try something in motion studies. I have this bowl, and i have its axis constrained to front and right planes, and the bottom coincident to the top plane. I positioned the three balls above the bowl in the first animation frame. I have all of their materials set to plain carbon steel.

Case: From the attached image it is observed that there is a link attached to a reference body by a pin on one of its end which acts as a revolute pair. The other end of the link is free.

Torsional spring preload possibility Hi! I know that for line springs preload is calculated by diffrence between two-point size on model and spring free length.

Are there keyboard assignments in Motion Manager for things like play, stop, etc.? Since there is not menu for these buttons I do not think that you can have keyboard shortcuts for them. But macros can be made for these buttons which can be triggered via keyboard buttons

hello all animation guru's. I was wondering if users of Solidworks would be willing to post simple animation movies here of work they have done? Just for general interest.

I just wanted to make sure I'm spending time with a product for which SolidWorks has a vision. With Motion, it is difficult to get help and if you look at the forum entries many of them go un-answered. It seems to change very little, with the exception of becoming chromatically challenged in 2016 to match the rest of the SolidWorks software group.

It is my first time to meet the motion mates with special sign on it when I run the motion. And the Motion collapsed when I run this motion Could you tell me how to recovery the mates to the normal state?

the gear and the plate are not concentric. there is a teeth on the plate which will move the gear to rotate. The effect to simulate is that the plate will rotate in a constant speed. when the teeth touch the gear, it will push the gear to rotate. when the teeth is departed with the gear, the gear should stop rotating. I set up the contact between the gear and the plate. But the strange thing is, although the gear will start to rotate when the teeth touch it, but it will not stop rotating when

As shown in Figure, I want to calculate the torque at a shaft parallel to the motor shaft. Both shafts are attached through 2 pulleys and belts as shown in Figure. For maintaining a similarity between my application* and solid works model, I have attached an imaginary motor to smaller pulley A..

I'm setting up a motion analysis and I have an example where I want to study the coasting down from full speed to zero as the power is turned off. The rotor of the electric motor has some inertia, but most of the friction (that slows down the machine) comes from the internal components. I want to link the rotor axis to the internal moving parts, so as to simulate the coasting down from full speed to zero, and then the internal components will act as a "brake" that slows down the motor. To

Hello guys, hope some of you can answer this, cause i am quite stuck in there... I want the little piece of metal from the black plastic bracket to bend whenever i screw in or out from the slot. I respectively named the 3 files to open : Open_this_one1 Open_this_One2, Open_this_One3

I have made a model with a folding mechanism like we see in an umbrella. I have also used advance mates for applying constraints to the motion.

I am building a Model of a crankshaft drive and I want to trigger sertain events in respect to the crankshaft angle. I fuigured out that I can add a sensor in form of a measurement, between the surfaces of the crankshaft and the bearings, wich gives me the crankshaft angle. I can then add an alert, when the angle reaches a specific value.

I would like some help from this highly respected forums. I have been working to do a motion of a gyroscope and I believe my gyroscope have shown a correct behavior. I intend to plot the graph of angular velocity of the spinning wheel (omega s) vs time and also angular velocity of the precession (omega p) vs time so that i can prove following theory.
