Simcenter 3D Solutions Simcenter 3D Motion - Fixed Joints with Excluded Constraints - Excluded rotation use case

Simcenter 3D


Fixed joints have the option of excluding constraints, thus adding some Degree(s) of Freedom (DOF). When using such option, the definition of the Action and Base Body should be reviewed in particular for the expected rotation behavior. Full details and a sample model are provided; a use case with 2 excluded rotations.
