Force Analysis with MechDesigner
The objective of this tutorial is to:
|•||To use the Forces Toolbar.|
|•||To understand the Force Vectors in the graphic-area.|
|•||To understand the Configure Power Source dialog-box.|
Gravitational Force acts vertically down, in the direction of Model's 'Global –Y-axis'. Therefore, when you start a model, and force calculation are important, it is best to start the design on the correct plane. To move a mechanism to a different plane, you must save the Model as a Library File, then select a different Plane to open the Library File.
