Hello,

i have a question about combining acceleration and constant velocity together in one function. I'm trying to rotate a joint in such a way that the first five seconds is acceleration and after those initial five seconds i have another five seconds of constant velocity. is that even possible?

PS: sry for my bad english...

Thanks

RE: Adams/view acceleration and constant velocity

It certainly is possible.

The simplest way is to do it in velocity

MOTION/1, JOINT=21, VEL, FUNCTION=STEP(TIME, 0, 0, 5, 10)

I don't recommend using two motion statements on 1 joint, but you might be able to, especially if you DEACT the first one when the second comes in.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply :) i'm still unable to solve the problem completely, but at least i've got an idea what to look for.

and yeah, i wouldn't recommend using two motion statements either, it doesn't really work for me :)
