Simscape Multibody - How to model a link with holes
2 views (last 30 days)
I have just written this easy code on MATLAB that provides the figure of a link with two holes. How can I export this function in Simscape Multibody in order to work with same exact 3D model? There must be something missing in the code for sure; I failed different attempts trying to recall the function in the info box of a general the extruded solid. Thanks in advance for your help.

You run the function prior to the simulation to obtain the 2D profile of the solid with hole. Then u get something like:
contour = [xA yA; xB yB; ....; xF yF] where you go from A to F in counter-clockwise fashion.
The vector contour is what you then introduce in the extruded solid dialog to create the body with required shape.
Best of Luck Juan
