Kinematics and kinetics simulation in Onshape
Hi. Coming from the Solidworks world, the motion study tool was extremely useful. Whether that was for creating simple animations, to tracking a position or acceleration of a part or point over time, to applying forces, friction, etc. to simulate a mechanism and view graphical results. What is the best and easiest way to do this using Onshape? I've been using a lot of 3rd party applications and I'm finding that it is becoming extremely complicated (and getting costly) to use so many different "Apps" whereas a program like Solidworks does it all "in house" easily.
