'bucket' simulation project by sioeng

I created a new simulation project called 'bucket':

create stress view for excavator bucket

@sioeng,

great CAD model! Just checked on your simulation setup. Your CAD model is an assembly containing multiple solids.

To reflect the kinematics between those parts, you’d need to add contacts between the parts. If you don’t add them, the parts are considered not to be in contact with each other which leads to the unexpected results your seeing in your current setup.

Currently contacts need to be added manually (we’re working on automatic ways) which would be elaborate for that model. So to start with this project, I’d suggest that you fuse the parts before uploading them to one solid.

Best,

David
