Motion analysis sensors in design study - angular displacement

Hello everyone,

 

I'm modelling a 4 bar linkage and am trying to optimize the design based on the angular displacement of the red link.  This optimization is being done through the use of a design study, which uses motion analysis sensors as goals.

When looking at the results from the motion study, sensible values for the link angular displacement are obtained.  However, when these results are integrated into the design study as goals, values in the 1000's are typically obtained, which do not allow the design study to properly optimize.

Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.  I've attached my solid model as well.  I am using SOLIDWORKS Education 2017.

 

Thank you,

Alex
