I am working on a Motion Analysis model for rotating a tube. So it is a tube, supported by 4 wheels. One wheel is driven.

I have a two frame that is connected to each other via a hinge and a hinge connection on the other end of the frame to base. there is a plate that was attached to the end of the frame to lift the other frame. I want to lift the two frame with a linear actuator, i made two contacts for the frame (see attached picture). I succeed in lifting the first frame but when it start to have contact with the second frame it failed (see attached video).

was wondering if anyone can help me with this. for whatever reason motion study has changed the color of one of my componets, of which i have a few in this assembly. so the same componet shows up as yellow in some places, grey in others. i have not changed the appearance, except to hide and show the parts. i've cleared all overrides in the Feature Manager Tree, and all the parts show the correct color. as soon as i run the simulation, they change back. i've tried changing them in the Motion

I have a lever and it is rotating at 10 deg / sec. When the lever is at -20 degree from horizontal, a mass(at rest) of 10 kg is attached on rotating lever. There is a spring of known spring constant and frictional damper of known coefficient.

I'm animating the motion of a gyroscope and I am having some difficulty. Lets say that the Gyro rotates about the Y-Z plane and sits within a housing that rotates about the X spin axes. Please see the pictures bellow for a better explanation.

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'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?

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, 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?
