Creo Mechanism Solenoid Simulation

Creo Mechanism Solenoid Simulation

Creo Mechanism Solenoid Simulation

Hello all,

Does anyone have a good reference for simulating a solenoid in Creo Mechanism? I would like to define the plunger movement by using the expected force curve for the solenoid which I obtained through a different simulation. I have a known displacement range for the plunger, and I would like to define the force output based on that displacement, ideally to match the magnetic simulation output.

I've tried everything I could find online. A servo motor doesn't really do the trick unless I set up a bunch of background mechanics and "fake it." I also tried a few force motor setups to no avail.

Any constructive input is appreciated. Thanks!

Experience: accumulated knowledge over time.

Talent: the ability to use experience.
