# Motion Analysis

Run a motion analysis, plot the results, and extract the results for use in structural (FE) analysis and optimization.

Run a motion analysis, plot the results, and extract the results for use in structural (FE) analysis and optimization.

**Analyze Motion**

Use the Analyze Motion tool to run and review the results of a motion analysis.**Force Explorer**

Use the Force Explorer to visualize force and torque vectors in a motion analysis.**Analyze Part**

Use the Analyze Part tool to extract loads from a motion analysis for use in structural (FE) analysis of a part.**Optimize Part**

Use the Optimize Part tool to extract loads from a motion analysis for use in structural optimization of a design space.**Tracers**

Use the Tracers tool to visualize the path of a trace point during a motion run.**Proximity**

Monitor the distance between two parts during the simulation. The endpoints of the proximity measurement are color coded. Blue means parts have a finite distance, yellow means parts are touching, and red means parts are interfering.
