Plotting Torques

You can plot torques applied to an assembly due to motors, torques, or friction.

  1. From a Motion Analysis study, click Results and Plots Tool_Results_and_Plots.gif (MotionManager toolbar).
  2. In the PropertyManager, under Result, for Category, select Forces.
  3. For Subcategory and its corresponding features, select from the following:
    Subcategory Features
    Motor Torque Rotary motor
    Reaction Moment Select one of the follwoing:
    • Torque, Torsional Spring, or other motion element
    • A mate and an optional face of a part attached to the mate, to compute the reaction moment exerted by the face on the mate.
      If you do not select a face, the moment is computed from the first face that defines the mate.
    Friction Moment A mate and an optional face of a part attached to the mate, to compute the friction moment exerted on the face at the mate.
    If you do not select a face, the moment is computed at the first face that defines the mate.
  4. For Select result component, select an option:
    • Magnitude to resolve the magnitude of the torque vector with respect to global coordinates.
    • X Component, Y Component, or Z Component to calculate the magnitude of the torque vector projected to the selected direction with respect to global coordinates.
      Optionally, you can select a reference part part.png to plot the result relative to the coordinates of that part.
  5. Select the Plot Results options you require, and click .

    The result appears in the MotionManager tree.

  6. Click Calculate Tool_Calculate.gif (MotionManager toolbar).
