  • Is it possible to calculate eigenmodes and corresponding eigenfrequencies, of a rigid body supported by springs, in Solidworks Motion Simulation (ie. not FEA, but rigid body mechanics)?

    This is a trivial example, but hypothetically you can have one or several rigid bodies suspended/connected with linear springs (and dampers). I'm not interested (at this stage) in elastic deformations of the respectiv...
