List all kinematic variables assigned as initial guesses
initialGuessVariables( outputs a table that
lists the guess variables in the
ks. Each row lists the ID, joint type, block path, and unit of a
Only joint variables can serve as guesses. To assign a variable as guess, use the
function. To remove guesses, use the
object function to drop guess variables that are no longer needed for the analysis, or use
object function to drop all guess variables in one call.
When multiple solutions exist, initial guess variables can help bias the solver to converge on the desired solution. Guess variables are optional but important solver guides in some kinematics problems.
ks — Kinematics solver object
Kinematics solver object, specified as a
KinematicsSolver object that
is the representation of the Simscape Multibody model used for kinematic
Example: ks = simscape.multibody.KinematicsSolver('sm_double_pendulum')
