Animation using Equations

Question asked by Matt Juric on Nov 15, 2017

Is it possible to modify a number in the equations folder and have that drive an animation?


For instance I have two parts that are mated by the same number that is calculated in the equations folder. In the assembly if I change the number both the parts move. These parts are in sub assemblies. Is there a way to drive an animation with that number?


I tried placing the parts in different positions using the equation in a motion study but for some reason that didn't seem to work. Very possibly I'm doing that wrong as I'm not very familiar with solidworks animations.
