Because the simulation is of a high speed device, modify the simulation properties.
TipUse the tooltips to see the names of the fields on the Simulation Player
Set simulation options
- On the Simulation Player, Final Time field, enter .5 s, which is sufficient to demonstrate the mechanism.
NoteThe software automatically increases the value in the Images field proportionally to the change in the Final Time field. Press the Tab key to move the cursor out of the Final Time field to update the Images field.
- In the images field, enter 200. Increasing the image count improves the results you view in the Output Grapher.
- Click Run on the Simulation Player.
As the Motor component drives the bevel gear, the remaining parts in the kinematic chain respond.
The direction of gravity has nothing to do with any external notion of "up" or "down," but is set according to the vector you specified.
Also, because we have not yet specified any frictional or damping forces, the mechanism is lossless. There is no friction between components, regardless of how long the simulation runs.
- If the simulation is still running, click Stop on the Simulation Player.
