Function General

This page is the center part of the DynaRod that enables users to design a rod by action genome and rod deflection.  This page affords several capability of below;  You can repeat the adjustment of dimensions until you get satisfied.

the comparison of before and after rod deflection
branch to and exporting data to Deflection Designer Excel tool
return from and importing data from Deflection Designer Excel tool
calculation of dimension from designed deflection

User should be familiar with that the rod movement assumption, "Translated Rod", is used in the calculation of this function.

The status of the screen

When opened this panel, if the excel output for this rod already exists, the panel shows a message to that effect and shows the contents of the file.  

When user redefines the target rod specification by this page and continues the processing, the existing file is overwritten by the new specification.

When this panel is displayed as a result of [Next] button of previous page, the panel shows you the deflection data based on the new specification.
