How to calculate effort using Dynamic Option in Mechanism?
I have case where I need to calculate effort required to rotate platform about vertical pivot. Platform has its own weight around 200Kg and weight itself resistance to move. I am new to the Creo mechanism and knew little things about this application. Anyone can help me to understand approach that I should use to get required result (similar to hand calculation) and want to know main steps describing dynamic entities that need to add.

I said its vertical axis pivot. about which platform rotate when someone apply force to other end. Force direction is parallel to the ground. We can take simple example of heavy door (about a ton of weight), which need to rotate about two hinge (vertical axis pivot), and we have to calculate force required at other end to rotate it.
