Defining an Output Using an Entity

In this case, the output is generated with respect to a selected entity

  1. Select Entity from the Ouput Method drop-down menu.
  2. Click the arrow next to the entity collector to access an entity drop-down menu and select one of the available options.
  3. Click the entity collector and select the desired entity from the modeling window, or double-click the entity collector to display the Model Tree (from which the desired entity can be selected).
  4. Click the Ref Marker collector and select the desired reference marker.
    The default marker is the global frame.
  5. From the drop-down menu located next to the Ref Marker collector, select I Marker, J Marker, or Both.
    Note: In case of MotionSolve and ADAMS, defining displacement, velocity, or acceleration using an entity other than Body results in defining outputs relative to the markers of the respective entity. For the Body entity, the output is measured at the CM marker with respect to the reference marker.
