How can I actuate spherical joint of Simscape/Multibody not by torque but by motion?

10 views (last 30 days)
For prismatic primitive, actuation includes motion. But for spherical primitive, torque is exclusive.
Is there any way to actuate the spherical primitive by motion?

Through R2021b, the Spherical joint can only be directly actuated using a torque.
You do have options for actuating a joint that specifies 3 rotational degrees of freedom. One option is to use a gimbal joint instead (also permits three rotational primitive degrees of freedom; make sure the degrees of freedom do not become aligned).
