    Simulation not giving correct results and trouble with analyzing imported loads

    Will Nagge

      I am trying to complete a tutorial on motion analysis and simulation in SolidWorks 2018. Half the time when I run the simulaiton it hides the part that I analysed after the simulation is complete and gives a colour plot the rest of the time as expected. When I get a results plot for magnitude of motor torque it does not make sense and does not resemble the plot in the tutorial. If the simulation does run and I try to go to the next step of the tutorial, which is analysing an imported load I encounter errors too. I will import the load and then when opening the part (link_plunger<1>) it tells me that there are no results files. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could take a look at my file and tell me if there is something I am missing or have done wrong. I ran the simulation with redundant mates converted to bushings and without which gave the same result. The file is too large so I have attached a google drive link to it. Thanks for your help. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aRLeC2oy5qqc0fB2UAax5h42LxIatZG0
