File Information

This file contains example models showing how to connect SimMechanics and Simscape models. Connecting the models using Simscape Physical Signals ensures a lossless transfer of mechanical power between the two systems. Simple demonstration models are provided to show you how to connect these systems.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.

To see how to defining bodies in SimMechanics, watch this video (5 min):

To learn more about multibody simulation with SimMechanics, please watch the webinar, “Multibody Simulation with SimMechanics".

hi steve, thanks for the SimMechanics-Simscape Interface library as well as the SimMechanics Contact Forces Library.

I'm using a dc motor to drive a worm gear which in turn drives the crank of a slider crank mechanism through the Rotational simmechanics interface. Now the mechanism is supposed to be non backdriveable because of the worm wheel, but it's not so. I'have uploaded the file here .

please tell me what i'm doing wrong.

thank you
