    Hi
    My name is Pepe and im researcher. During the last month i started to use ansys aqwa 17.2. Well, in this moment i work with 4 bodies (Not in series or 90º) joined by 3 hinges. The problem is that in the results it´s imposibel to know the degrees of the rotation movement in the hinges(only appear global RY), any of you have idea,how can i solve it???:confused:

    I don't understand very well what information you really want to see from AQWA as there is no sketch attached. But normally in AQWA all results are given with respect to the fixed coordinate system, if you want to see the results in any other local coordinate system you can do that by calculating in EXCEL the transformations based on the yaw, roll and pitch angles of the big bodies to which the hinges are attached.
