Animation Question
« on: November 02, 2015, 09:36:41 am »
Quick question!
I was in the throws of trying to animate the unfolding of this form and hit an issue or two. Creating the pivot points at varying angles caused me to contemplate hard. Do you think that this is possible using version 6?
Take a look,

You need a pivot object between every part. So keyshot can use the center of the pivot object as rotation axis. You can collect your pivot objects in a sub group for easy vis state.

With PTCs Creo Parametric you can import the mechanism fra files into animation groups.

In version 6 you will be able to set the hinge bars as the pivot points :)
