how to create pin joint in 3D meshing

Recommended Posts


sorry for the file is corrupt

when you want to make pin join, rotation around axle of beam must be released, this dof is 4

so create your beams with pin a = 4


connect beam with hole by 1 rigid only, so you'll not encounter dependency error (check F10>1d>dependency before run analysis)

and on the top lugs.. i wanted to constrain them..i.e only rot y is allowed and all other dofs are constrained..i ve created a pin joint there..later i have given constraints as in model..is it a right way to do it?
