Change physical unit of kinematic variable
changes the physical unit of the kinematic variable
id in the
ks to the measure given in
unit. That measure must be a valid unit, and the unit must be
appropriate for the variable—a length for translation variables and an angle for rotation
variables. Rotation axis components, used in spherical joint primitives, must remain
The new unit applies to every instance of the specified variable: if the variable appears in several variable groups, the unit takes effect in each of the groups.
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.
id— Identifier for kinematic variable whose units to change
unit— New unit for specified kinematic variable
