I have made a model with a folding mechanism like we see in an umbrella.
I have also used advance mates for applying constraints to the motion.
I need to to simulate all the simulations that can happen either in animation or in 3d.
While I was trying, I could only do maximum one motion of rotating the arm and I am not able to proceed any further as no other components are accessible afterwards.
I am very new to the motion study.
I am attaching my model here, as well as the closed and open position of the model.
It would be great help if someone could help in animating the motion from closed position to open position.
