Animate AutoCad 2D drawings


Recommended Posts

Hi, I`m not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but I`ll give it a try;



I want to animate Autocad 2D drawings from an automated process plant.



The drawings contains instruments in a PLC process plant, and I want to visualize status of sensors, valves etc..



Is it possible to set up autocad drawings with datapoints to change colors, show values etc ?

In real simple answer you can make slides and do a slide show, you can do delays etc a bit like Microsoft Publish but use Autocad. This is technology from years ago, I would have to look up the help big hint!

I was searching for the same but with VBA animation

got a simple tutorial at http://www.computeraidedautomation.com/article/animation-using-autocad-vba

and a demo video https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=d3cviYSX4tg

seems good to give it a try

but instead of lines and circles, you can use the blocks  (machine components, valves, sensors etc) to animate


sorry for the late reply!!!
