Default Java Macro to change rigid body degree of freedom during the simulation

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a way to enable/disable one degree of freedom in DFBI in Star-CCM+. I tried using Java macro to do this for me after a certain time, but it didn't work. This is what I used:

// STAR-CCM+ macro:
// Written by STAR-CCM+ 10.02.010
package macro;

import java.util.*;

import star.common.*;
import star.base.neo.*;
import star.sixdof.*;

public class DFBI extends StarMacro {

public void execute() {

private void execute0() {

Simulation simulation_0 =

PhysicalTimeStoppingCriterion physicalTimeStoppingCriterion_0 =
((PhysicalTimeStoppingCriterion) simulation_0.getSolverStoppingCriterionManager().g etSolverStoppingCriterion("Maximum Physical Time"));

if (simulation_0.getSolution().getPhysicalTime()>0.2)

{Body body_0 =
((Body) simulation_0.get(BodyManager.class).getObject("Bod y 1"));

((BodyFreeMotion) body_0.getMotionType()).setFreeTranslationX(false) ;}

I hope you can help me.
