I wand to conect solidworks with a pic to anímate a model throght the pic.
Your question is quite vague.
Do you wish to animate a model, and make a rotating picture?
Do you wish to build a model out of a rotating picture?
Do you wish to insert a picture into a sketch to make an animation?
I need to animate a mechanism on real-time with data from a PIC.
What is a PIC? Are you saying picture, or is that an acronym for something?
Taking a guess, I suspect he is referring to a PIC Controller.
Oh ok, way out of my expertise.
How about a VBA macro that responds to serial data input from the com port?
That could be usefull. I will made a mechanism for research proyect and with a PIC (controller) control it on real time.
It could be with an API ? How?
Please refer to Forum Posting and ask you questions accordingly.
That is not possible at this moment.
You may wish to use a new feature in SW2016 called Mate Controller for quick animation.

Yes I could solve my problem...
But I have some cuestions:
All time I need to have opened LabView and SolidWorks?
Is it possible to create a desktop application that works alone?
The simulations are natural or slow?
I had a similar need in the past. I was trying to demonstrate to a customer how a complicated mechanism worked. There was not one path, but at several stages there were options that could be selected. Even if you could interface with Solidworks Motion, the calculation time would make the experience very disappointing.
So what I did was create animations of all the possibilities with known end states that tied together. So, if it was a transmission then you would have a video showing a shift from Neutral to 1st, 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, and back again. You might even allow skipping gears, so a 2nd to 4th or 4th to 2nd. Once you have all the videos, you would use the animations capability of Power Point (2013) to move between the videos at the initiation of the viewer. Unfortunately I can't share the end result due to customer confidentiality expectations but it turned out pretty slick. There was some VBA code required to overcome a PowerPoint limitation. Powerpoint does not inherently allow automatic resetting of videos to the 0sec point when you return to a slide. For that VBA code you would need to contact Jamie Garroch of G-Mark. Let him know that this references work he did on January 7 for a video animation. If you can make an arrangement with him to set up the macro for you then you will need to set up all the interactions and the video.
This is not a PIC controlled animation, I realize, but perhaps it would be a part of your solution. Your request is not crazy, and I'm amazed at how rarely this type of interactivity is discussed. It is shocking how difficult it is to get this done.
Thanks to your question I will also investigate the other suggestions myself for the future.
Best of luck,Alan
