Simulation tools are meant to recreate reality but sometimes this is easier said than done! If you don’t accurately capture real world behavior in your setup, you will likely miss an important part of the solution or get results that are highly inaccurate. This can be the case for SOLIDWORKS Motion joint forces. In construction industry excavators, dual hydraulic actuators are sometimes used to support high loads and distribute them through the main structure, as for the main boom shown […]

At a recent Evansville SOLIDWORKS User Group Meeting, I presented a Hands-On session using SOLIDWORKS Motion Simulation.  One of the exercises was to throw an object off a cliff.  It’s an interesting application for SOLIDWORKS Motion as many of the details for projectile motion can be calculated by hand.  I’m going to show you how I used SOLIDWORKS Motion to verify the hand calculations.  While I need to leave some of the details of that presentation out of this blog, […]
