Default Turn Kinematics

Hello,

How can the new Turn kinematics be used? The value KINEMATIC_TURN_XY is not recognized in Flexsim or the dll (for module). If I try the value 3, 4 or 5 (as TRAVEL = 1 and ROTATE = 2), the object I apply the kinematics to, will always rotate around its y axis.

Esther

Oops, turn kinematics won't be available till the next release. I guess we accidentally put a later version of the user manual in with the last release.

Nice that it is coming, but I could sure have used it now... When is the next release planned?

It looks like we still haven't added the turn kinematic macros, but otherwise the turn kinematics work now. I've attached a sample model. The key is you will have to define the macros yourself for now:
#define KINEMATIC_TURN_XY 3
#define KINEMATIC_TURN_YZ 4
#define KINEMATIC_TURN_ZX 5
