Solid Edge have options to create linear and rotational motors:
What about if we need a non-linear path, let's say for instance?
On this case i want that BLUE part drives over the path made on RED part.
I had some results applying a linear motor, but is the path had some direction bigger or equal to 90º to that direction that i select for the motor, my blue part just stop.
So, i cannot get the full travel over a non-linear path.
ps: Files attached for who want to tryout.
Go to Solution.
I am not close to this, but based on what I recall in the demo videos you:
1. Create a path constraint.
2. Go into the variable table and find the variable that defines the percent along path (0-1 probably)
3. Make a variable motor (the other option after rotary or linear) by picking this variable name
4. Let er rip
@dcstaples' description is perfect, your solution is variable table motor.
