Hi, I am trying to export an animation video of an assembly that I created. The issue is that when I export the video the assembly shows up on the far right side of the frame instead of right in the middle of the video frame. Is there a way to change this without having to recreate the entire animation?

Hi All   I am Trying to to a study between a sphere hitting a glass pane. It works well on the basic motion, however when I set the motion analysis, the sphere just goes through the glass without causing any effect   I have tried all possible scenarios on the contacts and also on the assemblies    Below link to the assembly folder Microsoft… (Show more)

Hi,   I am using SW 2019 Premium SP3.   According to the documentation (2019 SOLIDWORKS Help - Tracing the Motion of a Point in an Assembly ), it should be possible to draw the trajectory of a point during a motion study. I cannot find the "Results and Plots" button anywhere. Has the feature been removed? Do I Does SP4 solve this? Do I need… (Show more)

I'm working on a bunch of animations at the moment and noticed that I can no longer get parts or assemblies to fade in or out gradually in a motion study. I've done this a thousand times in the past, but it just doesn't work anymore. For example, if a part is suppose to fade out gradually over 2 seconds, it will instead be a solid color and then… (Show more)

In an assembly, with many other assembly parts in it, I made an exploded view of a particular assembly and a part that is exploded vertically, when displayed in the motion study, moves horizontally, the movement is inversed but this problem only happens with this assembly, the rest of them move according to what is displayed in the exploded view.… (Show more)

I've been doing a motion analysis of a vehicle with tyres of Polyurethane on a sandy/rocky terrain. By default the materials available under the contact properties are aluminium, rubber, nylon, acrylic and steel. When I set a contact between the tyres and the ground, I have to set the properties of contact by myself which doesn't turn out to be… (Show more)

Hi everybody,  i am working with motion  and try to get our model into a motion analysis.   I do get the following message quite a lot:   " Number of new element states 2 doesn't match number of old ones, 3.   Those numbers are different every time.  Can anyone tell me what the problem is? 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 am exporting an animation to edrawing in Solidworks and we want the views to snap.  I used the interpolation mode and it works in the solidworks program but still pans between views in when viewed in the edrawing.   How can I get the edrawing to follow the interpolation I set for animation - and yes I recalculated the animation before exporting.… (Show more)
