i'll be back earlier than expected.
And it takes only a minute to create this animation!
i hope it helps.
Take a look at the video below. While this is not a chain you should be able to make an animation path that your links will follow to give you this movement. If you needed sprockets etc you would just make them rotate on their own accordingly.
SolidWorks Composer Tip: Conveyor Animations - YouTube
I want to a animation like solidworks did. It seem is real.
Can you attach the animation you did in Solidworks so I can see it? If you make your chain links follow an animation path, which is shown how to do in the video I attached it should move like real or close . This is going to be the simplest way unless you want to spend hours animating each individual link. Is there a reason you can't just use the Solidworks animation? Animations in Solidworks using photoview will look more realistic since Composer isn't capable of producing photo realistic renders at this time.
Hi Derek Parks
Yes, I agree with you. but I want to try chain animation in composer. Maybe have different answer.
Whats the reason for your idea to create an animation for this cabeltrack.
Its not easy and i dont think there is an possibility in this forum to describe this adequate.
Most time such a cabel track is used in a machine. And to show that it works we used a simplified form of cable track.
This cable track is easy to animate. move the curve and change the length of the yellow flanks (and move it) Also move the Ends.
Hi Dirk Rautenberg
Could you make a example for this ? I have no idea for that. please~
no problem Wynne, but i have a lot of business dates, so you have to wait till friday or weekend.
Thank you very much.
Thank you. If I have gear like bike, SOLIDWORKS Composer can do it ?
i think it is possible to animate a chain. But it will be a lot to do.
In most cases (>95%) not the chain, but the bike is interesting. So i will animate an Illusion using a fixed geometry like cable track and than use textures to create the illusion of movement.
Composer is not an construction tool! This Software is used to explain a technical function or issues. The content has not to be exactly. Everthing is ok if the viewer understand want you want to explain.
OK. I got that, thanks.
