Hi all, I'm hoping somebody could help me with this problem I'm having in the early stages of my design. The idea for the project is to create a mirror which can pivot or rotate back and forth via a handle that the operator moves from a distance, either this or possibly a mirror that they can slide from side to side (kind of like a crank-slider) to view what they need in order to work. I instantly thought of a bus door opening and closing and am working to create a handle like that. I'm struggling to see the motion of this though and figure out if it would move properly. I tried to animate it using techniques I learned from these videos but to no avail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4VAJ5mNnng https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTkNbi32ZNw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu6gMPZO86U <--- bus door opening Can anybody help with animating something in 3D so that I can continue progressing on this project? Thank you in advance!
Is there a way to split a single part in an assembly in order to show two separate halves during an animation. Scenario: My company wants to split a 40 ft shipping container in half to scab in a 4' section to make a 12' wide container. I have designed a jig on tracks to show how the container can be split and half of the container to be rolled away to allow for the "scab" to be built in the middle. IS there a way to animate this in Inventor.. The container is in the assembly model as a single part.
