SW 2008 has the new universal joint mate capability. I've never
been able to test it and I've never had the opportunity to build an
Do you have an example of a simple assembly containing this mate ?
... We are looking for the best method to derive reaction forces
resulting from digging with the dipper stick of a backhoe. We need
to see the maximum resistance force that is generated along a sweep
path of motion. Think... Hi guys,
I'm new on this forum! and i need a little help please:
I designed a simple shaft with a wheel on it. After saving it as an
assembly, the wheel is still able to rotate around the shaft.
When is in... Hello
I´m new here and I´m having troubles with the resolution
using solidworks 2009 in motion study; by default, it appears with
1200 x 300 aprox of resolution, my question here is: how to change
that... Hello MotionManager users,
I accidently deleted the explode changebar for one of my components
in MotionManager. I'm having difficulty manually getting this to
reappear. I don't want to use the animation wizard to... Can anyone advise of books/on line tutorials etc that get you
on top of motion analysis in SW Premium? I'm pluging away and am
finding myself consistently short of what I think a good book would
Thanks in ... i want to do the dynamic balancing of a rotating component.
suppose i have a roller type assembly, a number of component are
attached on it, rotating at some rpm. how can i know at which
direction it is unbalance and ... This may be the simples question to be posted here for a
while, and it makes obvious the fact that I haven't had the
occasion to animate anything in a while. Is it possible to get
smooth motion when using mates to pos... Has anyone experienced the visual loss of a face or a
complete component during rendering?
It seems that any face that has a round or spherical shape is prone
to loss. All is well during modifications/keyframing e... Hello there?
I am just creating an AVI of an assembly, but at all my AVIs merge
similar colours together which reduces the qulaity of the
animation. I have checked and created AVIs with full frame no
compression, ... Hi, I'm completing my assembly, but before to complete I'm
testing the simulation.
In basic Motion I can't simulate anything.
The rotary motor give me a rotation opposite to my desire and the
3D contact didn't wor... Is there a way to render a motion study using the Photoworks
renderer, but removing the appearances (materials) and having it
look like a shaded with lines model? I want to be able to control
the final animation size ... IS IT POSSIBLE TO UPDATE THE EXPLODED VIEWS IN THE ANIMATOR.
I DID AN ANIMATION OF EXPLOADED VIEW OF AN ASSEMBLY. IN THE
ANIMATOR IT WORKS FINE. THEN WHEN I CHANGE SOME OF THE EXPLODED

Velocity - Mag (deg/sec)"? Hello all,
Product definition team has started the planning for Motion 2011
and will like to know the problems you want to solve using
SolidWorks Motion, what are some of the pain points during motion
setup, and a... i am using solidwoks 2009.
i want to calculate impact load in spur gear simulation.
please help me to calculate impact load in motion studies.
jp I am working on an assembly with about 20 camera key-points.
All camera positions are now dialed in and i am happy with how it
looks, except when the timeline reaches the next keyframe.
The problem is this fast ra... hi i have created a motion study of torsional spring.
now i want to calculate the effect of spring on the components, so
i transffer the load motion to static analysis.
but somehow it,s animation is different ... Problem occurs using SW 2009 Premium, Windows XP 32 bit
I have a Windows Vista 64 bit machine available but have not tried
this simulation on it yet.
The assembly I am trying to apply motion analysis to... Hi, I'm designing a crank-rod system with two rods in
The problem is that the forces on the rods are not equal as it
should be. The reaction forces in concentric 5 and concentric 8 are
not equal. Why? Thanks
