Hi, I have been trying to do what I thought would be a simple motion stud.  I have a axial the will lift the "bin"(3000 lbs)  and a sprocket/ with a diameter of 6", I apply the motor to the sprocket outside surface and set it to rotate 150 degrees in 10sec.    Is solid works even capable of calculating the torque needed on the sprocket to pivot the 3000 lb bin?  My goal is to find the optimal size sprocket or change the attachment point on the frame that will hold the bin.  Thank you for your help   P.S. I have SW08.
