Sim Mechanics Question

Sim Mechanics Question

Sim Mechanics Question


I am using sim mechanics for modeling a dynamic system. I am using Real time workshop to build my model and generate an executable file. But I find that when I go from planar dynamic mdoel to a complete 3-D model, my simulation slows down drastically and fails to catch up wth real time. Is this an issue with sim mechanics? Or would I get a faster performance if I increase my processor capacity. My current processor is 3 GHz.

Also, I am using more than one ground block in my simulation. Can this be slowing down my simulation?

Help is appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Sim Mechanics Question

Of course u get faster performance when u increase your processor but not so much in order not to feel the difference between 2D and 3D, I think that u better rearange the computatzional times after the slowest process
