Animate Constraint

Hello All,

In catia V5R 16 I use animate constraint all of the time in sketcher but I am wondering is there anything like that in assembly design or is there anyway to get that command to the assemble design workbench. I would like to make my assemblies move.:)

I've been looking for same Animate Constraint feature in Assembly Design, but I haven't found it.

:) The best I've come up with is the MANIPULATE tool using the WITH RESPECT TO CONSTRAINTS option (although it can bog down if there are more than a few constraints).

:) Another trick is to turn on the automatic update, and then edit the driving constraint and click the up or down arrow to increment the value.

:) Or, you can use DMU KINEMATICS or DMU FITTING SIMULATION

:confused: Does anybody else have any other suggestions?
