Error while simulating

Error while simulating

Error while simulating


I created three wheels and clamps to hold them. I gave rotational motion to the three wheels (connected to the clamp to check) and they were rotating perfectly. As soon as I try placing a platform on top of them (so that I can apply a load and analyze)it shows an error. The wheels which were previously rotating well are not doing so now.
I tried both ways 1) the platform was fixed to the clamps,
2) the platform was just hanging over and my clamps. None of these worked. Error being shown.

Static equilibrium analysis has not been successful.
The maximum number of iterations 100, has been reached.
For the last attempted iteration:
The equation with the largest error was robot_in.platform Comp = 1 Error = 34.425754
The variable receiving the largest increment was robot_in.platform Comp = 4 Delta = 980665.000000.
ERROR: Simulation failure detected.
ERROR: Simulation failure detected.
ERROR: Simulation failure detected.
ERROR: Simulation failure detected.

PS: The error comes just by the introduction of a new part. How can this be possible?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Error while simulating


Yes I have. I did the initial conditions simulation to check and it says "There are no redundant constraint equations".
