I am having trouble finding a solution to animate the folds on a sheet metal part.  I have an assembly of a sheet metal product that the company I work for produces.  I have been asked to develop an alternate construction method which I have but would like to show it as an animation.  I can show the general assembly of all the parts coming together to form the final product, but I would really like to show the tabs folding as the product is assembled.  I assume this is done the same way in which people have done the folding box animation that can be found on YouTube.  Can anyone point me in the right direction for resource material that could help me out or a simple guide to get me started on the right path to animate my sheet metal part folds.  Even if it is something as simple as a pointer to the right menu option.
