Solidworks 2012


Hi all,


Just started using Motion Analysis for the first time on an assembly.


Receiving the message .... Motion integration step too small.

What the hell does that mean ?




Time  T= 2.881850754E+00

ADAMS  can not solve the equations of motion because the mechanism has "Locked up"

At least one constraint can no longer be satisfied.

ADAMS is unable to satisfy the constraint for :  CYLJNT/212  SI. XJ.


About as clear and concise as a politician's answer on Question Time.


If Solidworks knows what is causing the fault,

and Solidworks knows where the fault is,


why does Solidworks not highlight the faulty joint / part / mate in red on the screen so I don't have to guess where the fault is occurring  ?
