I have seen a few links to previous editions of pro/mechanica, but can't find any for the 2001 edition. Does anyone know where I might find some? I'm poor so I can't sign up with Kinetivision. Thanks in advance.
does anyone know if all assembly parts have to be fully constrained in order to animate an assembly in mechanism? I keep getting an error saying mechanism constraints could not be satisfied/ the mechanism could not be assembled when i try and run my analysis.
You can't fully constrain your components or you won't be able to add motion to them in MDX. The most common problem that I have when I get an error like that is that I referenced the new part to more then one assembly level part.
When you assembly a part in MDX it HAS to reference on one other part.
Also, if you try your mechansim after each time you assembly a new part, it helps in the de-bugging.
