Including Motion Results in Sensors

You can define motion data sensors from motion results.
You can use motion data sensors to track a motion study result value. With a SolidWorks Simulation Professional license, you can use motion data sensors to optimize motion parameters in a SolidWorks Simulation design study.

To create a motion data sensor to track a motion study result:

  • From a Motion Analysis type study, do one of the following:
    • Define the sensor by creating a new result first:
      1. Click Results and Plots (MotionManager toolbar).
      2. Specify the result details.
      3. Select Create new motion data sensor.
      4. Specify the other sensor properties and click PM_OK.gif.
    • Define a new sensor to reference an existing result:
      1. From the FeatureManager design tree, right-click Sensors FM_sensors_folder.gif and click Add Sensor.
      2. For Sensor Type sensor_type.gif, select Motion Data.
      3. For Motion Study sensor_motionstudy.gif, select a motion study.
      4. For Motion Study Result sensor_motion_data_result.gif, select a result defined in the selected motion study.
      5. Specify the other sensor properties and click PM_OK.gif.
