What causes this message to appear.  I can not find a … (Show more)

We have a new Universal Robot system and will be introducing more into our assembly environment.   Can I do motion studies in SolidWorks and save out the robot path info in a format that can be imported into the Universal robot control software?   Maybe we need a bridge software that can take the SolidWorks output and package it up for use with… (Show more)

I would also like part 2(1) to be hidden when it stops at part called CTP.… (Show more)

The L-bars need to collide against the white roller and be pushed away. I can push the L-bar when theres no limit angle but once i put in the limit angle mate the rotation stops at… (Show more)

Hi everybody! I need your help because I'm trying to do an animation but, cause the large assembly (see spec attached), is it all very slow! Change mates, change viewpoint is always a very long operation! I need to do at least 3/4 minutes of video and now I'm at only 20seconds (where for 15 sec are only a viewpoint change....the other 5 are mate… (Show more)

I cannot obtain a correct behaviour of any moving angle mate. At each frame the current angle value jumps on one side and on the other side of the zero degrees axis. Please try yourselves with the annexed sample. Can anybody help me? Thank you

hello all animation guru's.   I was wondering if users of Solidworks would be willing to post simple animation movies here of work they have done? Just for general interest.
