View Jumps At the end of a view orientation change, the view jumps back out after zooming in. Does anyone know how to control this?

Motion study When we simulate a movement with limit distance mate, I realized that there is an acceleration at the input and a deceleration at the output.

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.

I used solid motion for simulating the motion of robot hand. But I have some problem with it. When i move the yellow part moving 180 degree, and the blue part and violet part also move. I have tried to add another motor for blue and violet part but it have some error.

I'm on about my 6th SW animation and still struggling with the random events that unexpectedly occur. I'm on 2009 and 2010 with the latest service packs with a SW certified graphics card, ample ram. The main issue I am struggling with currently is that I have a part defined by two coincident mates and a limit distance mate that I want to animate linear motion between the limits.

i am new to solidworks.i am designing a conveyer belt system but my object doesnot move on conveyer. i have made contact bw conveyer and box but still its not working Have you tried steps from this videoHOW TO MAKE A MOVING CONVEYOR IN SOLIDWORKS

I'm trying to simulate a skeeting shooting mechanism. The mechanism has a virtuel spring, and it is loaded with a rotary motor. When the motor turns off, the spring shoots the disc, by rotating the discholder. But the thing is, that I've used a hingemate between the disc and the discholder, because the disc will otherwise fall of due to gravity, when it is loaded.

I followed a Solidworks tutorial on simulating a suspension systemvideo link I wanted to import my motion studies to run a stress simulation on the upright, but I am unable to select the upright even though it is a part file. There aren't too many posts on this topic, any idea on how to fix this issue?

Parts clipping through each other Hi there, I'm experiencing problems with parts in Motion Analysis clipping through each other, particularly the belt. The full assembly is here:

Hello, I am creating an assembly for motion study for my class and when I apply a rotor and playback the movement during motion analysis parts that I have mated to not move will move? Thank you From the behavior showing in the .AVI you attached it looks like the mounting points for your 4-bar linkage are not fully defined with mates.

I would like to do a motion study. I have an assembly in which the component should roll down a slope. Afterwards it should stay in a V - bed.

Hello Solidworks Community, Solidworks keeps crashing, when I try to save a motion study. It always says that Solidworks doesn't answer.

Hello Solidworks Community, I want to do a motion study with a car. I want to apply torque to the rear wheels to accelerate the car over a roadbumper.

Hello Solidworks Community, I want to do a motion study, with a car that has to drive over a roadbumper. But to do the study, i would like to replace the 4 encircled shock aborbers with springs and dampers, as the car just collapses with the dampers only.

I am very new and unfamiliar with solidworks, but hopefully someone here can tell me what it is I am not doing correctly. I am trying to create an assembly that uses a barrel cam and follower. The issue I am having is that when I go to do a motion analysis, is says "simulation cannot continue" and that the assembly is under defined. I realize the issue is with the cam and follower but I am not experienced enough to know what that issue is.

Does any one know where the impact force went in motion? I want to simulate contact without using contact as I know what will contact and where the contact will occur. There used to be a gas spring model in the training that used this. Did it get taken out?

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

How would I go about doing a motion study, with several tugger carts? I work for a manufacturing company, and we are trying to get some of our raw material to areas around the plant with a tugger train or several carts attached. I need to design something with a certain turn radius, and am having trouble finding someway of calculating it for several units.

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

I am a newbie for both solidwork and motion analysis. Right now I already have a existing robot arm model and want to test its torque limit for a certain motor. I read a lot of tutorials about how to do animation or motion analysis to plot torque result but no one worked for me. I tried the way of adding rotary motor in motion analysis but the arm won't rotate.

Hi Motion Study users, Our computer-aided optimization tool, CORTIME, is now also compatible with Motion Study. Therefore, I would like to hear, if anybody out there is using Motion Study for optimization?
