Mechanism connection

Mechanism connection

Hello,

I have a mechanism where the motor shaft rotates & turns a bevel gear which turns another gear which turns the spindle. I am not that great woth mechanism but I have made it this far. I need the nut on the spindle to move per each revolution of the spindle but also have its max & minimum limit. I just don't have the complete understanding of how this is to work. Does any one have any ideas?

A slot follower connection is what you need. on the nut make a datum point on the curve/edge defining the helical cut. select the edge/arc defining the corresponding helical path the datum point will move on. the joint limits depend upon how you want your nut to move ( along with other components attached to it)

Thanks Raja,



I will try the slider connection & let you know if it works.

RE: Mechanism connection

I actually used a rack & pinion gear connection. My only problem is the nut will only move per one rotation of the spindle. I don't have it completely figured out yet.

I do have the model working exactly as I want now. Does anyone know how I can export the analysis into a movie file with great picture quality?

Mike,

I did not see any responses. To create an mpeg file run the Analysis
(mechanism analysis run)
Select mechanism playbacks, select arrow radio button upper left, select
capture (lower left)
You will find the slower the better & a loop is continuos.
This brings up another window, browse to give the mpg a path to save and
give a name. MPEG is for a movie file
for accuracy you can adjust the size of the image by pixels. The main
driver for accuracy is the
frame rate 25fps-50fps.
I have only tried rendering once on the last workstation I had and it
crashed the session. Have not tired
on my new 64 bit PC or UNIX w 8gig of ram. I do many renders using
Photorender for presentations
for the customers. If you can get render to work it would be your nicest
movie. Yet, rendering with Photorender
is an art in itself.
