Motion Simulation in SOLIDWORKS

Javelin Tech Tips

From the SOLIDWORKS help: SOLIDWORKS Motion studies are graphical simulations of motion for assembly models. Motion simulation assumes all parts to be rigid during the simulation, meaning that during contacts, no deformations will take place. The first thing you need to do is to select the type of simulation you want to perform. There are 3 types of motion simulations in SOLIDWORKS including Animation, Basic Motion, and Motion Analysis.
