Tutorial to create a revolute joint in Catia V5?

  1. Step 1:

    Prepare such models in advance as shown to create a revolute joint between them.

  2. Step 2:

    Now start with the DMU Kinematics workbench

  3. Step 3:

    Insert ->existing component-> select the files

  4. Step 4:

    Insert->new mechanism

  5. Step 5:

    Select revolute joint as shown in the figure. See the mouse pointer

  6. Step 6:

    Fill the respective areas accordingly.

  7. Step 7:

    You can change the offset values by clicking on the value

  8. Step 8:

    Click on "Update positions" to update the mechanism

  9. Step 9:

    Select a fixed part.In this case it is the cylinder. You can do this step at the very beginning also.

  10. Step 10:

    You will get a pop up dilog box indicating that the mechanism can be simulated now.

  11. Step 11:

    Click on "simulation with commands"

  12. Step 12:

    Now you can perform the simulation by changing the position and then clicking on the play button.
