Skeletons And Motion

Back      Next

 

When starting a new design project, you should determine if you need motion simulation of design assembly. If you do need motion simulation of the design assemblies then you should plan right from the beginning and incorporate motion at the top level of product definition. This makes sure that finished product meets all the design criteria.

In this chapter we will learn how to incorporate motion at the top level of a product definition by following techniques

  1. Standard Skeleton
  2. Motion Skeleton

 

 

   

EXERCISE 1

The topics covered are as follows.

  • Creating a four bar mechanism by using the Standard Skeleton model
  • Defining conceptual design of the mechanism using sketch features
  • Creating Mechanism Constraints
  • Simulating the mechanism
 


EXERCISE 2

The topics covered are as follows.

  • Creating a mechanism for a Pick-and-Place device
  • Selecting stable references
  • Simulating the mechanism

  • Selecting stable references
  • Simulating the mechanism
   

EXERCISE 4

The topics covered are as follows.

  • How to use the motion skeleton to incorporate motion at the top level of a design project
  • Simulating the mechanism
