SolidWorks Motion Training Course
The course provides both essential and advanced sessions on the
basics of building, simulating and refining a mechanical design system, from suspension
steering system and drive shafts to backhoes, CAMS, Gears, and Actuators.
Who should attend: This course has been designed for new SolidWorks Motion users who would like to learn to perform motion analysis on their designs. The course provides an in-depth session on the basics of building, simulating and refining a mechanical design system.
Course details and prerequisites:
Duration: 2 Days
Type: Instructor Led
Level: Basic to Intermediate
After the training you will be able to:
- Use SolidWorks Motion to perform motion analysis on your designs.
- Size motors/actuators, determine power consumption, layout linkages, develop cams, understand gear drives, size springs/dampers, and determine how contacting parts behave.
- Introduction to user interface
- Constraint mapping concepts
- Action only forces and moments
- Action/Reaction forces and moments
- Motion drivers
- Building models for kinematic analysis
- Create displacement, velocity, acceleration and force graphics
- Translatory and torsional springs
- Translatory and torsional dampers
- 3D Contact to simulate realistic interaction between parts
- Impact forces
- Using Function builder and Expressions to build complex motions and forces
- Flexible connectors - Bushings
- Kinematic and Dynamic analysis
- Redundancies - Importance and how to avoid/solve them
- Export of results to SolidWorks Simulation (stress analysis)
