can you help me to learn how to simulate the move of gear and spring in pro\e. when i assembly a spring and other parts toghter,i want to simulate the moving status of the machine.but i don't know how to do it?
for simulating a gear just use pin connections, assign a motor to these connections, calculate manual the speed of the motors, and use the drag option to manual adjust the position right from one gear to another. Proe 2001 does't have a gear simulation option and you have to do this all manually (download my differential gear file to have a look)
Proe Wildfire (as PTC says) looked at this problem and proe Wildfire know can simulate gear mechanism
About the springs, you must have Mechanism Design Option (visit www.ptc.com) to simulate spring movement in Mechanism of Proe
