Mechanisms or animations? I'd like to think that developing mechanisms is pretty efficient (for me) at this point. Automatically generating the animation files of the mechanisms analyses is not so efficient. I would like to find ways to have more automated outputs (animations, graphs, static images, etc.) out of Pro/E. Most FEA packages (including MECHANICA) have some form of automatic report generation. I would like a similar capability in Pro/E.
I am following through the tutorials but am experiencing problems with the Drag Model menu.
First I set up bodies in the Body Definition menu. Then I open the Drag Model menu. The default is point drag. However, when I try either point drag or body drag, I am not allowed to select an entire body. I can only select features in any particular body.
Any ideas? It feels like I am missing some minor point about using the Drag Model menu; But I cannot figure it out.
The site also supports just about every other popular CAD system.
I know this topic from experience. I'vebeen an automotive designer for 10 years in my career (thankfully not now) and have used Pro/E like you guys on the fly. Now I write about it and try to help users like I needed help back then but could'nt find it.
If you get a chance to check out the site, please let me know what you think by replying to this thread. I feel better now and I'm going back to bed.
