I am trying to do a simple Animation and I am having problems with the constraints,what I want to do is animate a simple Ferris wheel but can't get the baskets to stay level with the ground.
Any help would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In defining this assembly is necessary to define the PIN constraints. Servo Motor you will define on the big wheel. Baskets (Cage) will remain in one direction, if you define GRAVITY (direction and size).
Note. "To define GRAVITY do you need a license - Mechanism Dynamics Option"
Have you tried using a software program called Blender? Blender is an Open Source, 3d animation program that works great with ProE models.
I use it for all of my animations with great results. Something like your ferris wheel would be easy to set up and animate within Blender.
Let me know if you have any questions about Blender or you need help with your animation. I would be glad to take a look at it for you.
I downloaded Blender,and will install it and play around with it a bit,will let you know if I get stuck or need any help.
