Is there a way to simply add a motor/actuator to a part in CATIA? I'm relatively new to CATIA/3D modeling (have been working with it for 3 months) and am just wondering if I can attach a motor to the mechanism which I designed in CATIA, so I can figure out how powerful this motor will have to be in order to rotate the mechanism? If anyone could help me out with this I would be greatly appreciative as it is one of the final steps for my workterm project. If I did not provide enough detail/ information please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Bro select the motor as per your mechanism output / work done
Check the your models kinematic in Catia add the formulas & laws
Hi, thanks for your message. To clarify the issue I'm having: I have a mechanism which I want to attach a motor to, to see how much tourque the motor will require in order to rotate the mechanism at the desired speed I want. I am not sure how to even attach a motor to begin with, and thats where my problem starts. What workbench/where do I have to look to find the command to attach a motor/actuator?
