Mechanism Animation - CATIA 3DExperience R19x

Hello Everyone,

Several subscribers asked me to create a video about Mechanism in CATIA 3DExperience, so this is the topic in that new tutorial!!! You will learn how to assemble parts together using engineering connections and then you will learn how to animate a mechanism.

The assemble is a Double Cardan mounted on a gear and a prismatic. You will see how to create these engineering connections and add a command to control them.

After the assembly phase, you will create a mechanism and manually move the different commands.

Finally, you will create a mechanism simulation and link different motors to the command. Once the simulation is run, you can replay the animation and generate some plot, traces and swept volumes of parts.

Find the models on these GrabCad links:
