Motion Analysis Overview
use Motion Analysis (available
with the SolidWorks Motion add-in from SolidWorks Premium) to accurately
simulate and analyze the motion of an assembly while incorporating the
effects of Motion
Study elements (including
forces, springs, dampers,
and friction). A Motion Analysis study combines
motion study elements with mates in motion calculations. Consequently motion
constraints, material properties, mass, and component contact
are included in the SolidWorks Motion kinematic solver calculations.
A Motion Analysis study also calculates
loads that can be used to define load cases for structural analyses.
the SolidWorks Motion solver in a motion study, select Motion
Analysis from the motion
studies type list in the MotionManager.
