## Mechanism distance measurement

Hi all,

I have a query regarding mechanism.

Is there any way to calculate minimum distance in moving parts?

Regards,

Sandeep K

## Re: Mechanism distance measurement

Sandeep,

There is a separation measure for which the evaluation measure can be 'minimum'.

Vertices are required

Although using it effectively may not be as straight forward as first appears.

Often one has to use the centres of circular bodies as one of the references.

The approach to a flat surface becomes problematic. You don't know where along the surface the minimum distance will occur. We end up making a 'dummy body' on slider that tracks the approaching body.

The technique required depends much on context.

Regards

Give us more info, then we can maybe help you. All you are saying now is "i have a problem, help" but you are not explaining what the problem is. What are you trying to achieve? What have you tried so far? What was the result of your attempts? Can you share a model?  ....
