Speedway

Welcome to our SolidWorks 2013 Speedway Tutorials. We use SolidWorks to create our Car and Track. Then create Motion Study using; Solve as Flexible, Motor, Contacts, Friction, Gravity, suppress Mates and Calculate. Adding a Linear Velocity Results and Plots we can determine the velocity of the car.

Now with Event-bases Motion Study sensor used to time your car. Your challenge is to design the fastest car!

The following tutorials with the PDF icon are available for download. Download the free reader from Adobe. Any questions contact us at

Here are 2012 tutorials.
 

After car completes one lap at around 2.3 seconds, brakes are applied without slowing motor and car slides. Motor is set to 0 RPMs to apply "brakes".
