Limits in Mechanism Design

Limits in Mechanism Design

Gurus...

I have an assembly that is conntect up by 6 pins... I would like to move
it around and test its limits, but don't know how to make it stop...
i.e. i have a hinge (an actual hinge!) and i dont want the hinge to move
inside itself, i want it to stop when the two parts of the hinge hit...

any thoughts?

I hope i explained this well enough... I'm a draftsman, not an english
major!! Smiley Happy

thanks in advance!

Nick, If you are actually using Mechanism constraints you can go to
the properties of the connection and set LIMITS.

re: Limits in Mechanism Design

If you have WF 3.0 you can enable collision detection 'on' in the assembly options. if this not the case then probably setting resonable limits for joint motion would be the only choice.
