i simulated a simple falling of a ball on a plate. i have expected that after balls contact, it would be jump up and down alternatively. but unfortunately it fall and then stop. Tags:none(add)motion_analysis

I am trying to simulate/capture the vibrational amplitude/ acceleration (in three direction X, Y & Z) in an assembly consists with 3 Ball bearings, 3 bearing housings (will be fixed on a plane), 1 Shaft, & 2 Weights (attached on the shaft). What I am expecting that, I will keep fixed the bearing housing carrying bearings with shaft inside. The shaft will carry 2-disc weights (will have centrifugal force due to rotation of the shaft) and rotate in different RPM like 100, 120, 140, 400 RPM etc.

Motion Analysis When I apply "Motion Analysis" on an Assembly and Start to Calculate, it gives me this Statement "Failure to satisfy velocity initial conditions. A probable cause is an over-specification of initial velocities of bodies.

I wanted to do a basic linear motion on an assembly by following the video on youtube (SolidWorks Motion Manager - Drag Motion - YouTube) as I am new to solidworks. I did tried another method using the motor (Piston Hareketi Linear Motor Solidworks 2015 - YouTube) just skip it to the part where it starts doing the motion.

Chain array motion? Can you make a chain array move in a motion study around a belt? Picture a cleated conveyor belt?

Linear motor problem. Attached is an assembly with two parts. I've been messing with this in a larger assembly for the last couple days.

How much experience do you have with Exploded Assembly configurations? It will be more helpful if you can attach some steps using screen shots or video As I have already made a video but using option "Animate collapse" in exploded view but I want every part to appear and then get assemble but right now in current video I have all the parts visible in exploded condition and getting assembled.

Can I run my set-up by anyone? It would be greatly appreciated as I've never done a motion analysis before. What I've done is made a rough mock-up of an assembly as one part in order to do a motion analysis because when I was trying to use the subassembly, it would not rotate the way I wanted. When performing a motion analysis, I get a resulting torque but I'm not sure if Solidworks some how uses the moment of inertia, weight of the part, etc. without me specifically assigning a force for it?

Multiple Rotary Motors Failing I'm trying to run a motion analysis to simulate a spacecraft rotating without being in space. It's a very basic model and I'm just using it to show a physical description and the motion that is intended.

Solidworks results for motor torque of a power screw raising and lowering a load are the same. Analytical calculations according to SHIGLEY, the torque should be different. The websitePower Screwsshows how to calculate the torques. I made a simple model in Solidworks to prove that probably there is a bug in solidworks.

I have Created a motion analysis, and duplicated it, so I could use the same study but with a different initial position. My problem is that in the duplicated study, when I ran an analysis, solidwork does not use the new initial position but uses the initial position from the previous simulation.

Is it possible to add information from mass/section/global variables properties and use it in motion analysis function builder ? Tags:none(add)motion analysis function builder

I plan to put in an enhancement request for Reverse Path so it works for suppressing/unsuppressing mates, but I'm only on SW2016. Can someone with SW2018 check if this has been fixed already? Most of the few motion studies I do go out and back, often with one part assigned a series of different tangent mates as it gets pushed this way and that, like a cam but more 3D.

My problem is that I have four rotary motors that are running properly then there is a short pause of the motors and then they run again. deleting the motors will be counter productive since my simulation requires two stages.

I have a motion study that looks like it is working fine. However, I am getting the red bar across the top. Does SW give clues to what the problem is?

Visual glitches during animation I am trying to animate a material folding and stacking process. Although there isn't an issue with the actual folding or moving process (motors), the part blinks in and out of configuration, turning itself on and off, or moving back and forth randomly.

Using Motion Analysis with Stress versus Static Stress I performed a static stress on an entire assembly with a load in the simulation. I then added a motion analysis and added an equivalent load to the same areas with motion, but the Von Mises stresses I got were much lower than the static simulation, which didn't make sense to me.

Whenever I run animation, the RPM and all the linkages run smooth, but if I try basic motion, there is a whole lot of red. What I'm trying to do is run a motion analysis, which I can, but the RPM is no where near what I set it to. Once the motion analysis is complete I wish to see the velocity of a point to compare to my analytical calculations. I attached my files, but can't figure out why this won't work.

Never managed to execute any Motion Study whatsoever, either it will be no-motion-at-all, or - quite often - SWCrash. Obviously, I don't understand the basic philosophy behind the entire concept? How to make parts move inside assemblies with minimum effort - besides dragging? I'd like to do simple things and simple drawings, not fancy animations.

I have two plates and between them, there is a spring, I want to compress the spring without that rebound effect and then release the spring from the compression. Is it possible to do that?

I am doing a walkthrough video using a camera at the motion study, but when I am saving the video, it is capturing only the screen and not the camera view port. anybody konws how to capture only the camera view ? The function does work (occasionally)...

I created a planetary gear set in Solidworks, and am trying to find the output torque when there are two input torques. To the best of my knowledge, all three torques should add up to zero, but this is not the case in my motion studies. Are the results from the other studies incorrect, or is my assumption that the torques must sum to zero incorrect? If my assumption is incorrect, how can I verify the Motion results using math (preferably algebra, as I have not learned calculus yet).
