Are there settings and "Tricks" to make saving an AVI more reliable for playback? I'm at about a 50/50 break as to whether when I save an AVI from an animation I'm able to play it back.    Can't seem to play much of anything in the default Windows Avi player that seems to play video captured from my phone just fine. If I open them in Windows… (Show more)

Can I use the API to update the positions of components in an assembly to get real time motion?   I am wanting to simulate a 6 DOF robotic arm where I would be streaming the joint angles from a script. Can I do this in SolidWorks?

Is there any way to drive Motors in an animation via a spreadsheet or other tool? Would be nice to have all the times for all the motors all next to each other rather than clicking back and forth from one to the other.

Let's say I have two parts in the exact same spot. I want one to show from 0 to 10 secs and then be hidden and then the other part to show at 10 secs and stay showing until turned off.   If I hide the part that is supposed to be on at 10 secs it works from 0 to 10 secs. However if I move to 10.00001 secs and click show it now fades the part on… (Show more)

Click to view contentHey, I just bought a new Acer Helios Predator 300, intel core i7 - 9750H CPU 2.60/4.3Ghz, RAM 16Gb, NVDIA GeForce RTX2060.    I am currently having a quite large assembly with 1510 components (approx 400 chains linked by Hinge mate, 6 sprockets, 6 beams, 6 conveyor bodies, and 15 boxes). I did find some little lags during the assembly process but… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi   I want to calculate torque and rpm in small gear? I created motion study, I take some results. But, when I add gravity, result does not change. I think I'm doing something wrong.    Feel free to make any good suggestions.

Ive been struggling for awhile trying to get my animation to stop fluctuating. It just goes crazy on its own rotations. I have this problem only with rotating components & it does not seem to do a smooth rotation even when seeing the preview (Play from start button). My rotations in my model are constrained my Advanced Limit Rotating mates.… (Show more)

I'm trying to save an animation and no matter what setting(s) I use I either get a "This file isn't playable" error or "This item was encoded in a format that is not supported"   I've read that I should use a different player but neither of the windows players work and I really don't feel like installing another player or installing a codec. I've… (Show more)

I am using the 2019-20 student version SP3 to do some animation in an assembly. I have noticed that I am unable to hide/show a component correctly. In the 2018-19 I could hide a component over ~2 seconds and it would slowly increase in transparency until it disappeared. Currently, the component will just snap off. If I try to turn the component… (Show more)

I have two similar objects that pivot about the same axis in an assembly. At a similar radius there is a 3D Sketch of a line between the two similar objects. The end points of this line are defined but the length is not defined. When I rotate one object and rebuild the assembly the line rotates. However, I cannot get the line to move using the… (Show more)
