Practical example: Hatch with Tension Spring. This example, produced ‘on the fly’, illustrates (although only as a quick run-through) a complete dimensioning process for a tailgate with a four-bar system including a tension spring.
In this tutorial it is discussed, how the information that the kinematics software ASOM v7 displays about the degrees of freedom of a kinematic system or multi-bar system can be used to create functioning kinematic systems.
Here you will find useful basic information about the ASOM v7 TUTORIAL series. We illustrate here briefly what ASOM v7 is, what kind of kinematic tasks it can be used for, and how the tutorials are supposed to be worked with.
