    Hangin Part

    Wayne Schafer

      We paint are parts and assemblies in house.  Is there a way I can simulate how a part will hang on a paint hook based on its COG and the location of the paint hook on the part?

          Wayne,

           

          I suppose you could use a gravity load in an assembly of your part and the hook, but I would first try doing it graphically with a line from the COG to the place on the part that the hook will contact. If the hook and the area where the hook contacts are fairly simple, say circular cross sections, then this should be pretty easy. If not, you may have to iterate a few times.
