SOLIDWORKS Motion Analysis helps users accurately simulate and analyze effects of motion elements (including forces, springs, dampers, and friction) on an assembly. Motion analysis uses kinematic solvers to account for material properties, mass and inertia in computations.
Users can also detect Interferences that occur between the selected components as the assemblies move through a specified range of motion.. Each interference detected shows the frame, time, part components and intersecting volume.
Using loads obtained from motion simulation users can perform stress, factor of safety or deformation analysis of components.
