The force analysis will now include only gravitational and/or spring forces. Inertia, Centrifugal, and Coriolis loads are zero.

You can still move it with a motion, and do a 'quasi-static' force analysis at all positions of interest.

Applications include: Scissor Lifts, Guard Balancing, Counter Balancing.
