This content refers to Simscape™ Multibody™ First Generation software. First-generation features are slated to be deprecated and should be avoided. To prevent compatibility issues in future releases, the Simscape Multibody Link plug-in no longer supports the translation of CAD models into Simscape Multibody First Generation models.
The Simscape Multibody Link add-in tool provides a Settings option. Use the option to specify:
Tolerances — linear, angular, and relative
To access the Settings parameters:
Open the assembly to export.
In the menu bar, click Add-Ins > Settings.
The Settings dialog box opens.
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 Simscape Multibody joints, Simscape Multibody Link compares the spacing, alignment, and relative numerical errors with the export tolerances.
|Linear tolerance||Smallest significant length difference||1e-5||Unit used in assembly. The default is |
|Angular tolerance||Smallest significant angle difference||1e-5||Unit used in assembly. The default is |
|Relative roundoff tolerance||Smallest significant relative numerical difference||1e-12||—|
