Welcome to the group
Your experiences could be hardware related. The modelview window is
based on OpenGL, if your graphics card do not support OpenGL this
will affect the performance of the graphic operations such as
zooming, pan and rotations. If your graphic card has limited memory
less than 64MB available or the graphic card is integrated on the
motherboard this may also affect the performance.
When running the full body models the analysis slows down compared
to running for example a model with the legs only. This is partly
because the Shoulder arm models uses muscles wrapping and this slows
We do not have a simple full body model available, but in the
repository there exist a 2DLeg in the Aalbog directory, this is used
by the application Arep/Aalborg/Bike2D and Arep/Aalborg/BikeSpring
these models is less complicated than the ones using the 3DLeg.
Furthermore in the Pisa directory there is model of the arm which is
less complicated. The application Arep/Pisa/Dumpbell uses this
You may of course also define your own model; you may start by doing
the tutorial getting started with AnyBody which shows how to build a
simple model of an arm.
It is also possible to switch off all the muscles in the models from
Arep/aalborg this is done in the main files by using the line
Instead of the line
This will replace all muscles in the model with artificial joint
muscles which make it possible to still run the inverse analysis,
this model runs very fast. Normally you may use the no muscle model
for playing around with kinematics of the models. Then once you are
satisfied with your kinematics you will switch in the muscles again
and run the inverse analysis with the normal muscles on.
Do you have a particular problem that you would like to model?, we
migth be able to guide and direct you to a suited model you could
use as basis.
Please do not hesitate to ask again if you have further questions.
