Creating an Iso-static Restraint

This task will show you how to create an Iso-static Restraint on a part. In other words, you will apply statically definite restraints allowing you to simply support a body. 


1. Select the Restraints.2 object in the specification tree to make it active.

2. Click the Isostatic Restraint icon .
The Isostatic Restraint dialog box appears.

You will restrain your part in such a way that it is statically definite and all rigid-body motion is impossible. The program will automatically determine the restrained points and directions. 
3. Click OK in the Isostatic Restraint dialog box to create the Iso-static Restraint.

The Isostatic symbol appears on the part.

The Iso-static Restraint object (Isostatic.1) has been inserted under the Restraints.1 objects set in the specification tree.
