How to do a linear time history analysis on a cantilever?

Discussion created by John Kathros on Dec 13, 2020

I am trying to do a time history analysis on my musical comb same as the one done here (1. Time History), and I am having trouble attaining a result. My part file is attached. I have fixed the bottom face of the body, and have a time based deflection input used within a selected base excitation on the fixed end of the cantilever. All I observe when I animate the input is the tine turning red indicating it is deflecting though not actually moving. I want to observe it damping as it oscillates over its resting position


Unsure where I am going wrong


Thanks in advance
