Using Multi-body Dynamics Flexbodies

MotionView has many pre-processing and post-processing capabilities with regards to flexible bodies, or flexbodies, for multi-body dynamics models.

In MotionView, flexbodies apply to:
  • Flexbody pre-processing consists of:
    • creating the neutral H3D flexbody file
    • translating flexbodies from one format to another or mirroring flexbodies about a plane
    • visualizing the characteristics of the flexbody
    • utilizing the flexbody in an MDL model
  • Flexbody post-processing consists of animating results from a simulation containing one or more flexbodies.
