R13.2: Machine-Settings dialog-box
'Cycles / Min' parameter: does not change the animation speed.
'Cycles / Min' changes the simulation speed, kinematic and kinetostatic [force] results.
In the dialog-box, if you cannot see the 'Cycles/Min' and 'No of Steps' parameters, then:
|2.||Click the orange Cycling Parameters separator, possibly two times, to show the parameters. |
Parameter boxes have three parts: [See more here]
Parameter value : is the top row of the data-box. For example, in the image, '111.3' is the parameter value of Cycles/Min.
'Spin-Increment value' : is the bottom row of the data-box. For example, in the image, '100' is the spin-increment value of the Cycle/Min.
Spin-Box tool : is to the right-side of the data-box. See more here
It has two rows of buttons with arrows. The:
|➢||Top arrow buttons edit the 'Parameter' value. |
|➢||Bottom arrow buttons edit the 'Spin-Increment' value.|
Edit the 'Cycles/min' Parameter:
|a.||Click the bottom-right, or bottom-left arrow button, to change the Spin-Increment to '10'. |
|b.||Click the top-right arrow button, to increase the Cycle/Min from '60' to '110'|
|c.||Click the bottom-left arrow button, to change the Spin-Increment to '1'. |
|d.||Click the top-right arrow button one time, to increase the Cycles/Min to '111'|
|e.||Click the bottom-left arrow button, to change the Spin-Increment to '0.1'|
|f.||Click the top-right arrow button, to increase the Cycles/Min to '111.3'|
|g.||Click the bottom-right arrow to increase the Spin-Increment to '100' |
Zero/Round contextual menu:
|a.||Right-click with your mouse pointer in the Cycles/min data box, to show the contextual-sensitive 'zero / round' menu |
|b.||Click 'Round' to make the Cycles/Min equal to '100' - see image. The 'Round' will round the value to that value that is divisible by the Spin-Increment.|
Edit the 'No of Steps' Parameter:
Enter an equation with your keyboard
You can enter the data as a new value directly, or enter an equation:
|a.||Click in the data box, so that the cursor is immediately after the '100' |
|b.||Enter, after the '100', with your keyboard: '+20' to give '100+20' - see image|
|c.||Press 'enter' on your keyboard to update the value to 120 Steps.|
