      Hi All,


      I am trying to animate a marker block to go around a rubber belt.

      to show that the belt is running as well as the pulleys.


      No matter what parameters that I use, it fails and I constantly receive this message.


      Motion analysis messages

      Failure to satisfy velocity initial conditions.

      A probable cause is an over-specification of initial velocities of bodies.

      Please specify fewer initial velocities and try again.


      What the hell does that meaningless text actually mean ?

      What is it trying to tell me ?


      I have tried setting the velocity as low as 1mm/sec and still have this message.


      Do I make the belt sketch ..... a path, or a spline, or both ?

      I have tried them all.


      regards  dave
