How to change standard acceleration (gravity) of 9.81 in MCD?
Open a part file and go to:
File --> Preference --> Mechatronics Concept Designer ..
--> tab General
Find the Gravity value Gz = -9806.65 mm/s^2
Here you can change the value and direction via Gz, Gy and Gx.
Be aware this is a "Part Setting
". This mean it is stored in the part file.
If you want this for new MCD-models then you need to set and save this preference in the (file new) template part also.
You can set this in the customer defaults also:
--> Mechatronics Concept Designer --> General --> Gravity and Material tab
This will be used when you create a new blank partfile and when you use "restore default" in the preference dialog.Remark:
This customer default is also used, when a partfile has never set explicitly the value for the Gravity. So, if a template has never been explicitly set to use gravity preferences, it then will have no part settings and use the customer default value.
