Display a curved arrow that indicates the torque direction and a cylinder that represents the torque magnitude
During an animation, the height of the arrow changes to represent the instantaneous torque magnitude and direction acting on a component. You must connect this component in parallel with a multibody Force and Moment sensor in your model. For more information on how to use the Torque Arrow see Using the Torque Arrow.
Defines the position of Torque Arrow in the 3D visualization
Torque input from the Force and Moment sensor
Torque magnitude scale factor (n). The torque magnitude (Nm) is divided by this number (n), to give (Nmn).
Defines the arrow and cylinder color. For information on using the color selection tools, see Selecting Colors.
Select this option to enable the Dynamic Color port. With the Dynamic Color port enabled, you can use the Color Blend component to change color throughout the simulation.
Select this option to make the geometry component transparent.
