Lesson Objective:
In this lesson, we will learn about the ball connection.
A ball connection is used to simulate a joint where the translation is completely fixed, but all rotationaldegrees of freedom are available.

You would use a ball connection to simulate:
·

A shoulder/arm joint
·

Vehicle suspension connections
·

Toggle switches
·

Any type of connection where all rotational degrees of freedom are enabled. The ball connection is often used with other connection types in order to minimize the rotational degrees offreedom. For this example, we will start an assembly that will be completed when we get to the lesson about cams.To demonstrate the ball connection, we will open the
Toggle_Switch.asm
assembly, which looks like thefollowing. Turn on the display of datum points, and assemble in the
TS_Switch.prt
component. When it comes in,click on the
Connections
section of the placement window, and change the connection type to
Ball
, asshown in the next figure.

You only have to pick two datum points, or two vertices as references. Therefore, we will pick on the
BALL_POINT
and
SWITCH_POINT
datum points in the two models, as shown below. When we do this, the points will align with each other. Click on
OK
to complete this placement, and then goto
Applications, Mechanism
. We can see the symbol for this ball connection, and it looks like one of those “atomic” symbols, as we cansee in the next figure.
