Hatch with Gas Spring
Practical example: Hatch with Gas Spring. This example, produced ‘on the fly’, illustrates (although only as a quick run-through) a complete dimensioning process for a deck lid with a four-bar system including a gas spring.
It factors in various different technical and ergonomic restrictions like manual forces, kinematic synthesis conditions, friction terms, different ground inclinations, temperatures, tolerances of the gas spring, real gas equations, animation directions, restricted zones, etc.
