File Information

This file contains example models showing how to extend Simscape Multibody 3D models with physical effects modeled in Simscape. Simple demonstration models of hydromechanical and electromechanical systems are provided to show how to create complete system models to test integrated designs.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.
To see how to defining bodies in Simscape Multibody, watch this video (5 min):

This is really helpful! I'm surprised this functionality is so hard to find, and not included in the SimScape Library.

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
