    Default CATIA Simulation

    Hi, Actually I want to animate a vehicle on a path in Digital Mockup, I have tried it several time by applying different type of joints and I have done it but it runs only on a straight path but I want to move it on a circular path, so it possible? Please help...

    With Kinematics, you could simply use a Revolute joint to rotate the vehicle part about a line in the fixed part.

    Depending on how much animation you want; create a new part consisting of two parallel curves that represent train tracks. The tracks can be flat, or bumpy. Use Point-Curve joints to have the vehicle part move along the tracks.


    For even more realism, you can add joints to rotate the wheels and have the wheels move up-and-down.
