One of the more commonly overlooked analysis types is the One-Sided Volume Analysis. This is a great way to leverage the associative properties of Pro/ENGINEER for what may seem like an otherwise obscure task; calculating volume. While the Mass Properties can give you the overall volume of a model, the One-Sided Volume analysis takes things one step further, and provides a more practical analysis result, the usable volume of a container. The following will outline how to quickly setup and make use of this type of analysis feature. (This works best with shelled geometry).... (Show more)(Show less)
This tutorial will show you Top-Down with Mechanism Assemblies. Motion skeletons are available in Assembly, allowing motion to be incorporated into the model
at the beginning of the design process. There is no longer a need to recreate an assembly to
include a mechanism analysis.
User can create mechanism bodies and connections as a motion skeleton, then run a simple
kinematic analysis to ensure that the skeleton provides the appropriate degrees of freedom. User
can then create and assemble components to the motion skeleton. Motion skeletons are defined
in the same way as normal assembly skeletons and include reference control settings. They do
not appear in the assembly bill of materials.... (Show more)(Show less)
