I've designed a contraption that includes large screw screwing into a block which pushes to pins outward perpendicular. Would you know how I would mate these to demonstrate this action?
I've already created the screw mate and create limit mate on the pins that go perpendicular.
Thank you for your help!
Without seeing the model it's tricky to answer but I suggest that you retain the screw mate, apply the limit mates to the screw and the ad a coincident mate between the end of the screw and the contact surface of the interfacing part.
Do let me know if this helped, of, if you have any other info, I can try and assist you further.
The screw mate has a limit mate on it and the pins also have limit mate to restrict the horizontal movement. So if I add a coincident mate the pins should move inward when I move the screw out?
I will try it out and let you know.
I couldn't make it work. However I was able to replicate it as Motion Study-Motion Analysis. It gets the job done.
Another question, I haven't found a good example of making a string dynamic in my model. Would you know how?
