Hi guys, I'm trying to evaluate the reaction forces on both the translational joints (they have been modeled as compliance joints in order to do not get redundant constraints). To achieve this result, I need to apply a motion between the piston (green one) and the case of the cylinder (yellow one) using makers, but the system fails to reach the convergence. I would like to know how to apply the motion using markers, since seems to be quite tricky to me. Thank you all.
Hello, I'm having a little confusion with defining a motion using markers. As seen in attached image, even though all translation and rotations which are available can be defined with respect to marker 2, there is still a selection for marker 1, which seemed irrelevant to me. I have checked the doc page, and what it says about the marker 1 and marker 2 fields is: "Select the first and second markers to which to the motion is applied." I find this confusing, as there are translation/motion options only for marker 2. And by intuition, I should need only one marker to define a motion with respect to it. Why do I need to select a marker 1? I would appreciate any information to clarify this. Thank you. Sincerely
I want to capture the animation for crash simulation with crash and IE side by side. While playing the animation, I am able to see the marker but when I goes to capture animation in any format (eg. .avi), animation I get not shows the marker progressive position. Please help us with the same.
Dear MotionView users, *** Note: I've also posted this message in the 'MotionSolve' section of this forum. But I think this location is more suitable for the question. *** I've constructed a model in which an object should follow a curve. This object is modeled in Solid Edge and the geometry is imported. Since the origin of the curve can slightly deviate, the body that should be in contact with the curve is not exactly aligned with the curve on the first sample. Now I got the following warning from the solver: WARNING: Marker I NOT coincide with curve in Body J! Minimum Distance = 6.610E+00 Initial PT-CV U = -9.766E-01 I would like to suppress this warning (or change the checking criteria) since I'm ignoring the warning if the initial offset is small. Can someone help me suppressing this warning or changing the criteria for the check? Kind regards, Geert-Jan
