We would LIKE to use it more. But, one I don't have any training in it; I've just tinkered with it. Two, Because I don't have training I can't seem to use our fully detailed assemblies with it. Too many parts, and too complex I guess for it to be able to automatically detect all the connectors, springs, etc. Everytime I talk to my VAR he keeps saying how I need to simplify the assembly. It'd be nice to be able to just take an existing design and analyze it without too much fuss, rather than having to figure out how you're going to simply it in order to represent the design in a similar fashion.
Same thing here regarding training, seems really hard to get/schedule training for any COSMOS products.
I get my training in minnasota too!
we also have cosmos motion and i would love to use it to transfer loads to cosmos
in our complex assemblies.
but i do not have training and dont know if it is even worth it. If i could get the book or get a good example of how to transfer loads i could figgure it out.
is the training worth it?
can it truly be useful on day to day?
I'm a Motion user too. There are several sources of training material:
- training manuals (there are two of them: COSMOS Motion Basics and COSMOS Motion Advanced)
- Cosmos Motion virtual tour (it's a nice interactive DVD that is contained in the curriculum and courseware DVD that any educational insitution received). It's my favourite because it covers most important subjects without making you waste too much time
Anyway Motion will probably receive the biggest enhanchements in 2008 when it will be as integrated as COSMOSWorks and COSMOS Floworks, and with loads more functionalities: design scenarios, gears contact forces, and os on
Anyway if you need help or tips just contact me.
Can you tell me from where did you get the training manuals formotion
if you can tell me please contact me
just call your solidworks reseller and order COSMOS Motion training manuals.
One is called COSMOSMotion 2007 Essentials, and the other COSMOSMotion 2007 Advanced.
