I have a problem and worked on it for 3 days without result. I hope someone can help me.
I have a motion model where I want to plot the angle between two faces. One face/part is fixed and one face (of a part) moves around a virtual centre of rotation by the construction. This face/part has 3 rotational degrees of freedom.
I selected the plot type "angular displacement" on the moving face with the fixed face as reference.
I have the feeling that the result angle is not the right angle. I used the measure tool to determine the angle between the two faces and it gives a different angle. Even when I specified the angle with mates, the "angular displacement" plot gives other values than specified while the measure tool gives the right angle.
I already repaired the model from redundant constraints, so that is not the problem.
So the question is, how do I create a plot with the angle between two faces? And how is the angle specified which solidworks returns in the current situation?
Does anyone knows the answer? It would be very usefull.
