2d mechanical linkage simulation

Are their any other tutorials on Solidworks "SketchBlocks" beside the
2 tutorials that are in Solidworks?

I would like to model 2d mechanical linkages, however the tutorials in
solidworks are not very helpful.

I am using a friend's 2006 version.

I did the 4 bar linkage tutorial and that worked out ok, and I then I
tried simple "stick figure"  4 bar linkage of my own design and that
worked out ok, but when I made my own blocks and added relations the
resulting linkage would not move.

Are there any books that are available on this subject alone?

Is there any online info to help beginners on this subject?

If I could get this 2d mechanical linkage modeling to work it would be
most awesome :-)

Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.

Go to http://www.swugn.org/pages/resources/documents/content_database.html 
and grab the one Bruce Holway did called Using Blocks for Mechanism Design. 
There are some good ideas in there.

Wayne,

Thank you for the link, perhaps with some more studying of the
tutorials in Solidworks and that PowerPoint presentation I can
eventually make it work.

I have been searching a lot for more info and my guess is that because
its so new maybe there are not many people using this yet.

This feature would be an immense time saver for experimenting with
different designs before committing the to the time for a 3d model.

Why choose SolidWorks 3D CAD for Mechanical product design & drawings?
SolidWorks is the trusted choice of Manufacturers and Product designers to produce desired design and drawings with ease and efficiency. It comes with the unparallel combination of ease of use and high-end functionality, allowing mechanical engineers an extremely powerful creative tool for developing effective and technically robust mechanical design solutions. SolidWorks=92 capabilities, for an illustration, make it easier than ever to analyze complex forms and geometries and develop impressive product designs while retaining the intended mechanical expression. Solidworks comes with more data/drawing translation formats than any other CAD technique. Features include view folding which allows designers to migrate from 2D CAD to make best use of DWG or DXF drawing views and explore incoming 3D data which can be converted into native SolidWorks files. With SolidWorks, your critical 2d or 3D data is not only safe but remains highly flexible and accessible any time. SolidWorks facilitates supreme control over your design-to-fabrication process. The advanced configuration management tool can produce multiple versions of components, assemblies and 2D CAD drawings in a single window with minimal time and effort. It comes with fully associative assembly functions =96 guaranteeing that each element of a 3D model is digitally connected =96 helping you visualize small areas more accurately. SolidWorks has improved collaboration tool that help all stake holders to work more efficientl...

SolidWorks for 2D only?
Does anybody here use SolidWorks for 2D only? One part of our engineering group works with temporary materials (cardboard, sheet plastics) and currently uses a program called Artios, which is geared toward that. Artios however is very poor as a CAD program, and they plan to switch to something that will work much better for them. Right now that plan is AutoCAD, but the rest of the engineering group will use SolidWorks. I'm thinking that they may also be able to use SolidWorks, but only for 2D. Any reason why that wouldn't work? Is there something that would make it very difficult ...

mechanical system simulation
Dear Ptolemy users, I recently installed Ptolemy. I am interested in the simulation of electromechanical systems. I started by modelling the equations of a damped mechanical oscillator subject to an external force, which I modelled using a CurrentTime actor and an Expression actor, in my case an exponential impulse. This example works great. Now, I would like to substitute the exponential impulse by a more complex, arbitrary, waveform of the external force. My idea is to use a piece-wise linear waveform that I could modify to resemble a realistic mechanical impulse. C...

2D drawings in Solidworks?
hello, my work is requiring me to draw some of our products in the form of 2D engineering drawings (the 3D models would be far too time consuming and difficult). i'd like to know if solidworks has some sort of a "sketch mode" where i can generate 2D engineering drawings WITHOUT first constructing the accompanying 3D solid model. i'm just learning the software and was wondering if i should just use autocad for this, although i'd much rather not. thanks for any info!

The uses of 2D fluid simulations
Hey all, I am just curious if any of you know of any uses for 2D fluid simulations on the graphics world. I already have the following. I'm writing a paper on the subject, and we have our own specific uses for it, mainly, to simulate a slice of a symmetric object, and then extrapolate to 3D). But I am trying to think of others. So can anyone suggest others? And, if possible, references to work that has been done and published would be great. We did think of another use: time-varying texture synthesis. However, we couldn't find much on the subject. Thanks. Dave On Dec 19, 9...

Hi, A client of us wants to migrate from mechanical desktop (r4) to Solidworks (2005). I heard from a CAD supplier that it is possible to first migrate to Mechanical desktop 6, open and save the models and then import the models in Solidworks 2005. This way features should be recognised. I don't know about drawings. Does anybody have experience with this? Thanks, Bas I've converted some older MDT 3.0 (Sheetmetal) files into Solidworks files with pretty good success. I had to use featureworks to do it and it was kind of a slow process, but it worked without any problems. ...
