please find enclosed a Robot file plus 2 spreadsheets. We're trying to calculate the joint between bars 2 and 4.
1st problem :
We can't load the values from Robot.
2nd problem :
When we enter the values by hand, the spreadsheet bugs when changing the angle (alpha), and stops calculating.
The file called 33SCHM_TIMB_EC5_009_BUG.xls was created after this bug.
The file called 33SCHM_TIMB_EC5_009.xls was created before it.
Thanks for your help.
We will investigate the import issue you reported (mind that it is required you divide bar 2 into two parts at the location of node 5). For the angle try to use the workaround shown on the attached movie.
