To use MF-Tyre/MF-SWIFT with your MotionView model, add an AutoTire entity from the MBD-Vehicle Dynamics Tools to your model. See Accessing Auto Entities in MotionView and AutoTire - Auto Entity for more information. Once you have added an AutoTire, select an MF-Tyre/MF-SWIFT property file. You can find example property files in the installation here:
