I DOWNLOADED THE CHAIN MECHANISM FROM THIS SITE, HOPING TO ADAPT IT, BUT I CANT DRIVE IT IN A COMPLETE LOOP. IT ALSO CRASHES WHEN I TRY TO DRAG IT. IS IT ACTUALLY POSSIBLE TO HAVE GEAR AND CHAIN MECHANISMS ON PROe OR ARE THEY TOO COMPLICATED?
i have tried a lot in the past to archive this but it is not possible even with the latest proe wildfire 2 software.
so i made a thought... maybe PTC has not look in this problem deep because as we know the chain mechanism is not a mechanism indeed... so we can simulate the chain assembly with a single curve that represents the chain assembly...also about its strength and its behavior in our forces, if we want to see it in Pro/Mechanica, we just have to look in the manuals of our chain.
