How many degrees of freedom do we have in Creo Gimbal connection?
What is the difference between Gimbal and Ball connection?
Both have 3 dofs
Ball is centred using a point or vertex
Gimbal is centred by using co-ordinate systems
You cannot control the rotations of a ball
You have 3 servo controllable/measureable rotational dofs in a gimbal
The manner in which the gimbal rotational dofs are driven in a matters as 'gimbal lock' can occur.
Thank you, Charles...
I am simulating the mechanism of ackermann steering. Can I use the Gimbal connection for constraining tierod ends? Right now I have constrained both the ends of the tierod using ball connection with a cone opening angle of 60 degree(which is assumed).
