Question: Why prismatic joints come with different sets of variables?

In a multibody assembly I have three instances of identically connected prismatic joints (flanges not conneted and identical componets at the frames)

In the simulation results the joints are listed with the following variables:

Why are the variables not the same for three identical components and what do the Fi and Mi stand for?

Is there any documentation on variables listed in the simulation results? It seems that more variables can be available than listed in the component documentation.

Please Wait...
