You can use the LVODE properties and methods in the Joint class to read or write properties of simulated robotics joints or invoke methods on joints, respectively. The Joint class includes subclasses with properties and methods for different types of simulated joints.

Refer to the Robot Balance.lvproj in the labview\examples\robotics\Simulator\Robot Balance directory for an example of using the Joint properties and methods.

The following table illustrates several types of joints that have corresponding classes of properties and methods.

AMotorJoint


BallJoint


HingeJoint


Hinge2Joint


PistonJoint


PRJoint


PUJoint


SliderJoint


UniversalJoint


LMotorJoint


Fixed Joints

Fixed joints maintain a fixed relative position and orientation between two bodies, or between a body and the static environment. Avoid using this joint type except when debugging. Instead, represent two bodies with a fixed connection as a single body. You can make two bodies as a single component in the CAD Model Importer.
