Tips for the Solidworks portion • Creating the motion – • Add a rotary motor • Your Motion profile should be Segments and have the rotational velocity profile on the following slide • Drag the time diamond so that the simulation lasts for 10 seconds
Use a rotational velocity distribution that rises from 0 to 120 deg/s (20 RPM) over 2 seconds, then remains constant at 120 deg/s. 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 Rotational Velocity Time (s) Rotational Velocity (deg/s)
Tips for the Solidworks portion • Creating the motion – • Make sure Solidworks Motion is enabled • Select Motion Analysis • Check the motion by pressing the calculate button (to the right of Motion Analysis)
Tips for the Solidworks portion • Analyzing the motion – • Insert a plot for the Linear Displacement, Y component, between the top of the Table and bottom of the Base. If you reverse them, the plot will be upside-down. • Do the same for Velocity and Acceleration. • Finally, right-click on each plot and export data to a spreadsheet. From there you can copy it into the spreadsheet with the calculations.
