Anyone Use Universal Mechanism Lite to Double Check a Motion Study?

I'm in the process of learning to use Motion Studies to analyze forces and want to experiment with some slightly more complicated mechanisms. Using hand calculations to verify models quickly gets out of hand for any but the most basic models . Has anyone used "Universal Mechanism Lite" - a free analysis tool that can be found here:


as a tool to validate SolildWorks Motion Study results? If so, what were your experiences? I want to get to the point where I'm confident I'm building models that can be solved correctly by SolidWorks.
