The example consists of a series of steps that:
Start with a CAD assembly.
Show how, with Simscape™ Multibody™ Link and Simscape Multibody software, to translate the assembly into a Simscape Multibody 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.
The complete procedure requires the original CAD assembly and platform, as well as Simscape Multibody Link and Simscape Multibody software.
The video requires a Web browser with a compatible streaming video application.
