Hi! I'm having trouble with the MapleSim "Equation Extraction" template. I have an extremely simple dynamics scenario with RigidBody at a particular position in a world; when the simulation starts, the body should simply start fallin with a constant acceleration, and I'm looking to extract kinematic equations for this situation.
However, the problem I have with the extracted equations is that they contain some rotational dependent terms that I wish to avoid - a lot of sines and cosines with arguments that I actually cannot match up to any variables in the model, or when I enable quaternion representation, terms like this:
What I don't understand is what exactly these rotation terms represent. The object should be falling straight downwards, and gravitation should be applied straight downwards, and when I start the simulation it does run through, also indicating that there should be no unbound variables. I'm not sure exactly what parameters in the Modelica model do they correspond to? I did not find any such angles in the object settings. And can I ask MapleSim to generate equations without these unbound rotation variables?
