Configure SimMechanics Link

SimMechanics Link Settings

The SimMechanics™ Link add-in tool provides a Settings option. Use the option to specify:

  • Tolerances — linear, angular, and relative

To access the Settings parameters:

  1. Open the assembly to export.

  2. In the menu bar, click Add-Ins > Settings.

The Settings dialog box opens.

Dialog Box

The dialog box contains two panes:

  • Assembly Tolerances — Specifies linear, angular, and relative tolerances of exported assembly.

Enter the export tolerances for a CAD assembly. During the conversion of CAD constraints to SimMechanics joints, SimMechanics Link compares the spacing, alignment, and relative numerical errors with the export tolerances.
