Hi guys,


When I choose equivalent static method to AS1170.4, which weight is Robot including in the analysis?? I can't find any place where I can specify the weight that is used.  I'm assuming it's DL1?  Or just self weight?


Please advise.

Hi Tony,

in this type of analysis the mass resulting from self-weight is considered. Moreover it is considering added masses or load to mass conversion declared as "Global" or "Dynamic".
