Spring Motion Analysis

Question asked by Daniel Eggler on Jul 1, 2014

I have a really simple set up consisting of a spring attached between two plates. One is fixed and the other is free to oscillate. I apply gravity downwards.I try to tackle the problem from two approaches.


1) I connect the two plates with a spring in Motion Analysis. This works well but I cannot see the spring when playing back the analysis. Is there a way to keep the spring in the playback?


2) I have attached a spring that I modeled first to try and preempt the fact the Solid Motion Analysis spring will disappear. The problem here is that it seems to simulate the modelled spring as opposed to the plates I want to oscillate. No idea what is going here.


If you need me to upload any screens or vids of my issues please let me know.
