master node in rigid bodies

Recommended Posts

Ok thank very much.

 

Another question, and know how I can set a boundary condition in this rigid body?

As seeing in the picture by selecting a node it tells me that it cannot be possible.1073530119_Capturadepantalla(3).thumb.png.9b3ef3b7f605b0a9935b772715eb7e8a.png

There are no visible rigid bodies- you should first make them visible in by right-click rigid bodies in browser>view options>show. It will only accept master/independent node of a rigid body.

 

To constrain in all dirctions except X translation choose appropriate DOF (se attached image). You can also define a skew frame, if you want to constrain in different coordinate system than global coordinate system which is default.

The light green spider is a rigid body and the master node is at its center. Hide all components so only rigid bodies are displayed and then pick the node in the center. 

 

Or right-click the rigid body in the browser and select cross reference. /NODE ID is the master/independent node number of a rigid body. This ID can be entered as Add Node IDs in boundary condition Support parameter.
