Appyling torque to tire in Motion Study

Question asked by Gilgamesh Ryusaba on Mar 30, 2018

Hello Solidworks Community,

I want to do a motion study with a car. I want to apply torque to the rear wheels to accelerate the car over a roadbumper.

I have made the mates (I have 0 redundancies, so they should be okay), and I've applied the torque. But when i run the motion study, the wheel spins, but the car doesn't move.


I have defined gravity and contact between the tires and the ground, so I don't understand why the car doesn't move.

I have attached the parts, assembly and the study as a "Pack and Go", so I hope someone can discover the mistake!
