I'm trying to run a force analysis on a modified design of a vertical axis wind turbine to get a plot of the force on the blades over degree of rotation (Example attached) The operation of the turbine is that when wind blows from a direction, on one side the blade opens up (since there is no restriction) and on the other side, the blade is… (Show more)

Hello,   I've been working on a mechanism for a pull toy to drive the legs of a tortoise back and forth (driven by the green axle in attached .zip file).  When I click the red rod and drag it in Model view, the mechanism works as it should - the big wheel rotates and drives the lever back and forth using the slotted arm.  But once I try to… (Show more)

Hello,     For my research, I need to perform an impact analysis. I found some information about the drop test analysis that can be performed in SolidWorks[1]. In here it is described that the analysis is done via this formula:   [M]{a} + [C]{v} + [K]{x} = {F}   Where: M = Mass matrix a = acceleration vector C = damping matrix v = velocity… (Show more)

Hello Solidworks community , I am working on a project for my engineering class and I am in the final stretch of it, but I have run into a bit of a snag. So basically I have this axle with tires and rotors mounted to it, I have tried several different methods to get it to work, but nothing seems to be working. When calculating the motor, the whole… (Show more)

Hello. Can we plot the v-t graph of a point in the assembly using SW motion analysis? For example the point could be a point x mm away from the end of a rotating stick fixed at the other end. Thanks in advance.

I have SW Professional with Simulation. I have not needed to learn it or use it up till now. So having zero training in Simulation or Motion studies I am asking if it is possible to do a study on a barrel cam assembly?  I rather not put time into it only to find out it is not possible. If it's possible to do can anyone recommend some online… (Show more)

I am using SolidWorks 2019-2020 Education Software. I am trying to get my blocks mechanism to move in Motion Study but each time I select the Motion study tab the software Crashed? Help I do not know why this keeps occurring.

I am a educator at North Idaho College and I reside in the Career Technical Educational Facility. I am currently using SolidWorks 2019-2020 Educational software. I have one network and one stand along license. My question is this: after inserting sketch blocks into the layout in assembly doc. and testing movement by hand before attempting to go… (Show more)

Hello I'm having issues with a radial step I want to animate. When I test it through the Animate Explode option it works fine, but when I use the Animation Wizard, it becomes literally an explosion! The parts distances are much longer than what I typed in the Property Manager. What should I do? Please help!

I'm working on a bunch of animations at the moment and noticed that I can no longer get parts or assemblies to fade in or out gradually in a motion study. I've done this a thousand times in the past, but it just doesn't work anymore. For example, if a part is suppose to fade out gradually over 2 seconds, it will instead be a solid color and then… (Show more)
