In recent years, physical simulation is a new trend of virtual assembly (VA) technology. As a part of physical simulation, mechanisms motion simulation is an important research topic. In order to realize the mechanisms motion simulation in VA system, we presented the realization and application method of mechanisms motion simulation in virtual assembly system combining the prototype system, Virtual Assembly Process Planning (VAPP). We described the bottom framework of VAPP system used for mechanisms motion simulation. Then based on the support of bottom platform, we studied the realization method of mechanisms motion simulation and apply mechanisms motion simulation to virtual assembly simulation via some technologies in VAPP system. Our research shows that, simulating mechanisms motion in VA system not only realizes the visualization of mechanism analysis and simulation, but also improves the ability of analysis of VA system effectively and extends the application range of VA system.
