Question about DOF of the rigid body imported from Solidworks


#1

Guys, I’m completely new to Anybody. I’ve followed a few tutorials and I start to work on my own project.
In my model, I have two segments, which should count for 12 DOF. And I also import another rigid body from solidworks. However, the total DOF is still 12 instead of 18, what happened here?

Hi Yuan,

I think what can be confusing is that may not have included the SolidWorks model into your study, either by making a reference to it or by directly including it. Then the when you look at the study info it do not count it in.

Note that in the ModelTree for each study you can get an overview of which segment has been included and which constraints are present.

Best regards
