Hi,
I was asked to help a friend from school, she designed a box with a lid connected by a hinge, and wanted to make a rotation animation.
The hinge does not follow the x,y or z axis, and the result is that the lid will not rotate concentric to the cylindrical helper object.

Could you please take a look at the model and tell me if there is a solution?
The box is colored cyan. it has a bottom lid that works fine (white) and the top lid is the problematic one (blue). the helper object is red.
The model was built in solidworks, and I also tried to use the cylindrical model supplied with keyshot. I've searched the forums for a solution and followed the guidelines from the keyshot help. Everything I did so far has failed...

Thanks ahead!
