Advanced Motion Analysis Options Dialog Box
You can select advanced integration options in this dialog box.
To access the Advanced Motion Analysis Options
Click Properties (MotionManager toolbar).
Analysis, click Advanced Options.
Integrator Type. There are three
types of integration
methods you can select for interpolation using the SolidWorks
Maximum Iterations. (Default
value is 25.) Specify the maximum number of times the numeric integrator
iterates in the search for a solution for a given time step. If the program
exceeds this limit, a convergence failure is recorded.
Initial Integrator Step Size.
Enter the first integration step size used by the variable step integrator.
The initial integrator step size controls the speed at which the integration
method starts, and its initial accuracy. You can run the simulation more
quickly in subsequent runs by increasing this
Minimum Integrator Step Size.
Enter the lower bound of the integration time step. You can decrease the
simulation time by increasing this value.
Maximum Integrator Step Size.
Enter the upper bound of the integration time step. This is important
if the integration method does not detect short-lived events such as impacts.
Set this value to be of the same order as the short-lived events. If you
set this value too large, some events can be ignored by the simulation.
Jacobian Re-evaluation. Drag
the slider to select how frequently the matrix is re-evaluated. More frequent
re-evaluation gives better the simulation accuracy at the cost of simulation
time. If the model does not change significantly over time, you can use
a smaller Jacobian re-evaluation option.
