Hello everyone smile

I have problem with step nr 4 ("Apply height formula to the helix.")

When I change height of my spring, as is in tutorial then I'll get three problems:
1. Helix - Feature involved in an update cycle.
2. Rib - Feature involved in an update cycle.
3. Formula - Feature involved in an update cycle.

What can I do? Please help me.

Hi, I'm new.

I get a problem while I am trying simulate spring, please help me figure it out.

I want to send you a mail, but the address seems to have problem that I couldn't.

I just couldn't let the spring update in synchronization while the movable plate was simulated, how can I modify?

It's in a bit of emergency, thanks a lot!

Best Regards,
Lai.

Hi, I'm new.

With the document "Coil Spring Simulation using CATIA DMU Kinematics", I have tested something that could be easier

My approach is to record frame by frame as in the document but with a macro that update automatically the product and increase the position of parts

I don't use DMU kinematics but i think we can do similarly
I use a constraint of distance between to parts and use it in parameter in the building of the spring

The macro is like this

Code

Sub CATMain()

'---- Début du script de résolution de l'objet : Product1

Dim productDocument1 As ProductDocument
Set productDocument1 = CATIA.ActiveDocument

Dim product1 As Product
Set product1 = productDocument1.Product

Dim constraints1 As Constraints
Set constraints1 = product1.Connections("CATIAConstraints")

Dim constraint1 As Constraint
Set constraint1 = constraints1.Item("Décalage.7")  'here you define the parameter to drive

'---- Fin du script de résolution

product1.Update

For X = 30 To 40   'here you set the extremes values of the movement
constraint1.Dimension.Value = X

product1.Update
Next

End Sub

I hop that could be useful smile

sorry if my English is not really right, I m French (as you can see in the code wink )

Hello everyone.
can any one send me a video or anything that explains more the process to make the assembly and the kinematics of the coil-spring(shown in the video), cuz i made my own and tried to folow the steps of the PDF file but i couldn't succeed.
here is my e-mail:

..waiting for your help gentlmen smile
