Unusual Sketcher usage:)

Postby kwahooo » Wed Aug 31, 2011 4:27 pm

I've wanted to test Sketcher as "2D kinematics simulator". I modelled car suspension with McPherson.

Model is very simply, eg. spring is symbolized as line without length constraint.
I attached file with my schematic car. Just open it (before this please delete zip extension) and start edit sketch. You can change:
car body angle - constraint 42
ground clearance - constraint 43
suspension geometry - other constraints

Have a fun!
