The chain pendulum example illustrates how to create a custom component. A chain pendulum can be viewed as a concatenation of chain links connected to each other. In this example, we will show how to develop a custom component chain link to be used in the pendulum model. We will also show how to attach CAD shapes to Multibody components.For a step by step tutorial see Custom Component—Chain Pendulum.
The custom component chain link consists of a rigid body rotating around one of its extremities.
A chain pendulum model is built with several chain link components.
