Get force of an object

Post by MaartenHo » 04 Apr 2019, 08:56


In the link you find my scene I worked on:

I have to move the frame up and down related to the axis and motor. I already set this up, but now I have to know what forces the frame cause in the Z-axis. I need this force to know what the torque is on the axis and motor caused by the frame.

But when I use command sim.getJointForce, in the beginning, the value of the force increases to -98,1N (this is correct because the frame has a mass of 10kg). But when I rotate the motor and frame moves up I get forces of 31612N, I think it's to big.

Someone who can help me to get the right value of the forces from the frame?
