I recently just started looking over some API examples for SwMotionStudy.MotionStudy but I have yet to see anything involving editing specific explode steps from an automatically generated explode animation in a Motion study. Has anyone attempted this?Keith Rice?Deepak Gupta?

Good morning All, I hope somebody can help me with my challenging study. I would like to apply the forces on one side (blue arrows) and determine the resulting force at each pivot point (green circles).

Hi, Im am trying to use a rotary motor in solidworks animation to rotate a chain around 2 sprockets but I keep getting errors? The chain & sprockets manually rotate when I drag them by hand, but when I try to run it in amimation it doesnt work? I would really appreciate any help as I have been trying different things for ages! Thanks.

I'm having a very hard time trying to figure out how to remove the gray appearance on my assemblies when I have the part hidden and then shown as the motion study progresses. I expand the tab in the tree and hit remove appearances. Next I hit play on the motion study, runs just fine. Play it a second time, or rewind the motion study to before the part and it changes back to gray.

I'm running a motion analysis to determine the force a linear motor would need to output to open a hatch (axis of rotation is horizontal). I'm happy with most of my results except for the very beginning of my simulation when the actuator starts pushing. I get a huge spike in the output force! I've seen this is a few other peoples results browsing around.

This is the information that i can findhttp://help.solidworks.com/2017/english/SolidWorks/motionstudies/c_Supported_Functions_SWMotion.htm?id=b99ae5cf38bb4a3d9bb8c273c9c914e8#Pg0&ProductType=&ProductName= but it will be great to have some examples with their respective graphs, i see that there is some kind of logic like the IF function but doesnt seems clear to me.

So i am trying to simulate a chain and sprocket motion, the sprocket should have a constant speed & the chain should be engaged with the sprocket teeth & move in relation to the sprocket speed. Using a gear mate i have mated the inner roller of the chain to the sprocket axis. When the mated chain link moves around the sprocket it is engaged, however when the sprocket leaves the sprocket at a tangent the speed of the chain changed in relation to the sprocket as the link is mated to the axis of

Ok, I am doing a motion study and checking clearances between components. I would like to create a 'volume' of the motion of a component.

How can I define material other than acrylic,steel, etc... in motion analysis contact? For example I want to have contact between 2 hdpe material, how can I define this contact? To define contact material other that standard materials, you have to uncheck "Materials" check box and type all properties manually.

I am using SW2014 SP5. I decided to use the assembly layout feature to work out a basic 4-bar linkage (a feature I use rarely).

Motion analysis correct? I tried a motion analysis in order to figure out what force is needed to push a beam, as shown in figure below. The weight of the beam is 13 kg and I assume steel (greasy) friction between the beam and the guiding (2 components above the beam).

I'm working on a simulation where all I have to do is hide/show a bunch of items. I want them to fade in and out as I go along but sometimes they do and sometimes they don't and I can't tell why. All the timesteps are similar and all the interpolations are set to linear. If I look at some of the earlier items in my assembly as I step through I can see the transparency changing but on some others it just snaps straight from 0 to 100.

I have to blocks settled on each other, and I would like to know the force that could push them off each other. If I add mates to make them on top of each other, the force would move both of them. How can I tell solidworks that they are different bodies but attached to each other, so I could find the force to separate them?

Hello everybody. In this video, from 2:27 to 2:29 (should play at 0.25 speed), you can see the central line extend. How can I do it? Can I change its length in motion study?

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 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
