Watch a CAD Import Video

About the Example

The example consists of a series of steps that:

  • Start with a CAD assembly.

  • Show how, with SimMechanics™ Link and SimMechanics software, to translate the assembly into a SimMechanics model through export and import.

  • Show how to modify the original assembly, then reexport and reimport it with successive changes that modify the imported model.

  • Show how to manually modify the initial generated model, then update it with changes to the original assembly, without losing your manual changes to the model.

The assembly models a double pendulum, subsequently modified to a triple pendulum.

What the Example Requires

The complete procedure requires the original CAD assembly and platform, as well as SimMechanics Link and SimMechanics software.
