Forces-Vectors: Calculate

Enable Force-Vectors: Calculate to silently calculate Kinetostatic Forces Vectors at each joint in each kinematic-chain that is kinematically-defined.

Force-Vectors: Calculate also calculates the Application Load or Application Load Torque for each kinematic-chain.

You must select the correct element as the Power-Source - see Configure Power Source.

To calculate the Forces Vectors:

A minimum of one Part has mass and/or inertia

And / Or

A Spring FB applies an external force to the kinematic-chain
