Animate Assembly

Unread post by Robert » Wed Sep 25, 2019 7:35 am

Are there any good tutorials on how to use the animate tool? Most of the tutorials are for TS7 not for TS Wood?

I would like to be able to animate a simple rotation of an assembly.

Thank you,

Yes, but not as complicated just the basics and I would like to do it in TopSolid Wood, not TopSolid7 if possible.

There is not much information about Kinematics. It's "old thing" in TopSolid Wood and officially no information about this. I asked materials for that year ago and got that answer. Here is very small video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwFxl33iGcw&t=12s
Maybe this one helps a bit too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7ljHIHV42Y

You have in Projects folder sample files.. look Bike Timing. There is small animated assembly scenario. I tried to look inside, but tree was too long. I can play with this on the weekend, maybe I can sort something out.

So from what I understand from your not looking to animate it being taken apart and assembled but just want to travel around your design and present it so I would suggest looking at Assembly | Travelling is much easier I think I have not used it in a while I think you can even draw geometry for the camera to follow. :idea: :?:

Thank you all for the links, The Traveling function worked for me, I'll try kinematics next.
