Need help animating rod flexing/bending

Discussion created by Kevin Liu on Jul 3, 2020

Hi guys,

 

I'm looking for some assistance in animating the flex feature.  By following a video I found online, I was able to create a flex feature on the rod I am looking to flex and add equations to it that are meant to supposedly automate the flex.  However, the video did not detail how to create an animation from this.  

 

I'm hoping to be able to animate this rod flexing in an assembly once I get it working.

 

File attached.  If anyone could play around with it and put in the required features I'm sure I could figure it out from there.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!
