Point Force in Mechanism


New member
Hi -- I want to apply a point force in Mechanism, but it doesn't seem to register. I have a simple model of a shaft rotating in a fixed block. When I apply a force (relative the shaft Coordinate system) at the end of the shaft: rotate the shaft with a servo motor, and have a measure of the reaction force at the connection between the shaft and the block, the measure shows as zero. What am I doing wrong?
