Build the assembly. Instead of applying a force, add a link and anchor it at the free end so that the link is in the same direction as the applied force. The resulting reaction force at the anchor point will be the force required to keep the lever static. Anything greater will move the lever.
create a linear actuator (two concentric cylinders) and apply a linear motor to move it slowly. Then you can see reaction force through a range of motion.
As I say - I'm newbie in simulation. And my English knowledge is not so good...
Of course I know how to model assembly (connectors and rotation axes) but I dont know what next...
Can You (or somebody) show me tutorial, or similar simulation?
So, I have simple assembly (see attachment).
What next? In simple words.
Maybe can anybody help me via skype for example?
