I'm using functions to control a displacment motion on a cam.
The assembly has a cam a, a pin and a spring. The spring is
attacehed at one end on the pin and the other end is grounded. The
first phase of the simulation moves the cam, loaing the spring
throught he pin contact with the cam. The second phase lets the now
loaded spring react on the pin and move the cam. The problem is
that i'm trying to use a spline function to set the loading portion
of the spring, however, at the end of the function I want the
spring to control the motion, while the spline function has a nul
effect on the assembly. unforttunalty it appears that the spline
function continues on moving the cam, even after the function has
gone past the last time/scale point.
any sugestions on how to create the loading condition I'm looking
In my buisness I see where CosmosMotion would be a great help, but
its just not as user friendly as other Solidworks products.
What type of contact are using between the cam and the
follower. Ifyou are using the "Curve to curve" contact
without"Intermittent contact" then this might happen. I wouldlove
to see some sort of image of the model or the model itself
torecommend any other settings which can help you.
