MSC Adams tutorial

MSC Adams tutorial

Does anyone have links of tutorials on how to build a bicycle on MSC Adams or tutorials on how to transport and modify a bicycle on MSC Adams please?

RE: MSC Adams tutorial

Thank you very much for your answer. I finished the latch not long ago and am now trying to work on Adams Car for a bicycle project. I'm a little lost and not sure where to continue. I previously wanted to make it on Adams View but didn't know how to get hollow cylinders, I don't know if that was an unnecessary worry though and if I can just use what is there.

RE: MSC Adams tutorial

There's a couple of ways of making hollow cylinders. I'm not a VIEW user, so take this with a pinch of salt. The lazy way (mine) would be to work out the mass properties for each tube and type them in. Alternatively you can do a Boolean operation and subtract the hollow from the solid. That is assuming that tubes aren't directly available.

I think you are going to run into various problems using Car for bikes. The first is that the static equilibrium position for a bike is lying on its side on the ground, which is not very useful.

RE: MSC Adams tutorial

I see, thank you very much, I think the lazy way should work. I will try to use Adams View first then
