Design Mechanism, Slider Cranks and Genev


New member
Hi all,

I have created Mechanisms of Slider Crank and Geneva using the Pro/Mechanism option and right now i just have models and animation files of it. Is there any way i could do anything more using the Mechanism/Design option or any other Module of Pro/E. Iam a Newbie to this module and need your Valuable suggestions.

Thanks in Advance,

Hi Siva,

You can do interference check during movement, create a motion envelope.

With the "Mechanism Dynamics" you can calculate forces.
