Dynamic Response of a Planar Seven-Body Mechanism – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Dynamic Response of a Planar Seven-Body Mechanism

This mechanism is part of a sheet-feeder for a high-speed printer. Called a "squeezer", it is probably one of the most widely simulated and analyzed mechanisms in recent years. This single-degree-of-freedom system is now a standard benchmark for all multi-body simulation tools. Thus, simulating this problem has become a standard for comparing the accuracy of MapleSim.
