I need to animate the lock bar going over the locking bumps in the lock bar trough. I currently have tried combing bodies and the assembly to a part but it still goes through the bumps. Sorry for the poor explanation. Attached is image of what I am trying to do.

In the motion study I have a complex organic shape and when I drop this object to a vertical solid plane with gravity I can see the natural balancing of the shape.I want to save this state as a default orientation of the object. Is it possible to do that or is there any other way? Siavash Khajehhasani May 19, 2017 3:24 PM (in response to Direnc Demirbas) Direnc: I do have a unique solution for you.

Just wondering how do I create a rotary and linear motion for below example. The cylinder has a small hole right at the center and I want to roll the cylinder forward such that it will be concentric to the small hole on the block.

I am looking for a way to make my subcomponents in an assembly behave like solid bodies. Right now when I apply a force to a subcomponent, it just moves through the rest of the assembly instead of colliding with the other subcomponents. I need to see how the collision translates motion to the rest of the assembly. Can anyone help?

Deformation Study I'm trying the tutorial on youtube Advanced SolidWorks Animation - Deformation - YouTube but there's still something I'm doing wrong that it doesn't work. My file is attached.

I have a sketch that shows the moment value depending upon how all the parts interact. I want to run the motion study and have the sketch rebuild at each keypoint.

How to give rotion of nut or bolt during a collapse animation? At the time of assembly, I had use screw mate for bolts and nuts but after exploded when I make its collapsing animation but and bolts can't rotate.

Clutch with rollers mechanism For an assignment at school we are supposed to do a motion analysis on a mechanism from the Cornell library and I got the Langen clutch which has rollers in slots that engage and disengage based on the direction that the lever attached to it is being moved. I have tried using contacts in the motion study to get the rollers to work correctly but so far nothing seems to get the inner wheel spinning.

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.

Motion Analysis Providing Unexpected Results I have setup a simple motion analysis to simulate a snap ring being pulled out of a shaft and I am trying to figure out the force required. I have a simulation on the snap ring by itself to calculate how much force is required to compress the ring and then performed a vector analysis to estimate a pull force based on the contact angle.

I'm wondering if it's possible to simulate the movement of a part (i.e using path mates within a motion analysis study) and also simulate how parts deform against others along this motion. I've created a motion study of an assembly tool travelling through a pipe using path mates, but now wish to learn how the rubber parts (shown in red) deform against the interior pipe wall instead of simply overlaying.

So in essence I have a motor applying a torque to a plank spinning it. However the plank is fairly heavy. I want the plank to rotate at a constant velocity/frequency and to do this the torque applied to the plank will vary with its position.

Changing camera view during rendering I am curious if anyone knows a way to switch which camera's perceptive is to be shown during an animation. I have set up a scene with a couple different cameras which are to be used for 10 second duration and then I want the perspective to switch to another camera.

Hi! I'm using Sworks 2011 Pro & I am trying to set up an avi file to show a mast opening & closing. As soon as I start the animation the mast disappears & I only end up seeing the top of the Mast at the end. Same thing happens when I want to rotate it!

I hava a Simulation Premium licence and i have activate the licence for the Motion Analysis but after i set the motors. i cant find the Event based motion view. Or when i click it it doesnt do anything Motion. Alessandro Tornincasa Mar 8, 2017 3:11 PM (in response to Marios Kyriacou) Something is not right with your Motion study interface.

Hi, I can drag the following assembly just fine (it consists of two circles mated with traction as in an internal, hypocycloid gear mate), but when I try to run a motion study, I get the error Illegal function expression on MotionModel_2.Layout__Traction2_TractionCircleCircle1. Error message follows: While processing expression: (VXYZ(20,19) - (1.#INF00000000000*WXYZ(19) - 1.#INF00000000000*WXYZ(20))DXYZ(20,19))*(UVZ(19)DXYZ(20,19))
