when I add a model item to my 3d-model, the origin is in the center of the part. I want to rotate this part around a joint and not around the center of the model item.
Is there a way to manipulate the origin of a model item or can I define a joint?
thanks for the answer. No, I haven't tried it yet.
Do you know where/if I can find a trail/student edition of Creo Illustrate?
I already downloaded the Creo 4.0 trail, but Illustrate is not included.
I got Illustrate but I'm not achieving what I wanted.
I want to move the axes of an industrial robot with sliders.
If I could change the origin of the model item to the position where the joint is, I could simply bind the slider value to the specific rotation of the model item.
If I try it with Illustrate, I can only start the sequences in a particular order and not individially with different sliders - am I right?
The only effective way to change a CSYS is in Creo Parametric. Basically you move the entire solid model to the origin you want using Flexible Modeling.
