    Ball&Socket Snap force Motion analysis

    Milton Choy

      Dear Sir and Madam,


      My name is Milton. I am designing a ball and socket snap connection. I would like to use SolidWorks FEA to simulate the amount of force needed to snap the ball on and off the socket so that I can confirm the socket dimension. I have been using Motion Analysis; however, the result is way off from the physical testing result (Factor of 10...) Any suggestions?


      Thank you very much. I am looking forward to hearing back from anyone.


      Yours Truly,
