User Parm Linked Hinge Example


In this tutorial, a multi-hinged arm is demonstrated by altering a single user parameter linked to multiple Hinge components and solid cylinders. Each of the Hinge angles are set with linear links to the user parameter as a fraction of fully deployed. In this way, a single user parameter can be used to perform combinations of translation and rotation about multiple coordinate systems to achieve complex motion. Creating and adjusting linear Links in OpenVSP is not covered in detail in this tutorial.
