The MV vehicle library consists of system definitions for different sub assemblies. These system definitions can be instantiate (creating an instance of the system definition ) as many times as needed.

Please go through tutorials MV-1040 to MV-1070 to learn about creating and re-using system definitions.


Assuming that the vehicle you are trying to model has an additional rear suspension, you may re-instantiate a rear suspension system definition. you may also have to instantiate a tire system definition to go with it.


Shown below is the System import tab which can be used to import the system definition.



The definition may be found at ~install/hw/mdl/mdllib/Libs/Model/Rear_susp.

you may chose appropriate type of suspension folder.

You would have to then change the attachments (connection entities to the system) appropriately.


Alternatively, instead of accessing the install, you can export a rear suspension definition and use that to import. 


In both cases, the new wheel center locations have to be entered.


I hope this helps.

I tried several times use models from: \Altair\12.0-edu\hw\mdl\mdllib\Libs\Models\Tire and it import only some marker and other stuff but not showing geometry/body of tire in my MBD model.
