hi i have access to sw premium 2010.
my shaft is supportred on both sides. i want to see min max deflexion and stress at different stages of deflextion (1,2,3,4,5mm) since in dont know how to do this, i put a physical support in the point of interest, with contact mate but only for positioning... same for the 2 extremities. works out fine if the supports are in contact but when i try to put a 1 mm play in the middle (2 extremidies still being in contact) the shaft goes righ thru them as is they wherent there.
anyone could help?
i think solution lies in component contact, just dont know how to handle it so far
i made the supports .200 wide... in reality, they are normal 10 in wide and because of deflextion of the shaft, it will bend and only touch on the inside part of the 2 extremity supports... i couldnt model those and the shaft would be glued to the whole support. with th support being .200 wide, the can bend and not affect the result...
please please please help me
