Is it possible to calculate eigenmodes and corresponding eigenfrequencies, of a rigid body supported by springs, in Solidworks Motion Simulation (ie. not FEA, but rigid body mechanics)?

Question asked by Mats Lindqvist on Feb 10, 2021

This is a trivial example, but hypothetically you can have one or several rigid bodies suspended/connected with linear springs (and dampers). I'm not interested (at this stage) in elastic deformations of the respective bodies, but I would like to calculate the eigenmodes and corresponding frequencies of the system of rigid bodies. Is this possible to do in Solidworks Motion Simulation?
