Drop all guess variables from the KinematicsSolver object
clearInitialGuessVariables( drops all guess
variables from the
ks. Guess variables bias the solver toward one of equally plausible
solutions when several exist. Use this function if none of the guess variables are any
longer relevant—for example, before formulating a new kinematic problem for the same
multibody model using other guess variables. Guess variables are optional but important
solver guides in some kinematic problems.
The figure shows the variables of a general
Target (T), guess (G), and
output (O) variables can be joint variables (J) or frame variables (F). The
same variable can serve as guess and output, but if it serves as target, it cannot double as
guess. Assigning a guess variable as target clears it as guess.
ks— KinematicsSolver object for which to run the analysis
Name of the
KinematicsSolver object for
which to run the analysis. The object is a kinematic representation of the model from
which it derives. It contains the variables upon which the analysis depends.
