Motion Study Collaspe



I am trying to complete a motion study for an exploded view collapse. I am trying to produce a video to show how a product is assembled. I have split each part in the assembly into different motion studies and all bar one is working correctly. I have the exploded view in the model space animating correctly but when I open the motion study and use the animation wizard it changes the orientation of a part and adds a rotation at the end.

The animation wizard asks when to start the collapse and how long it should take. Start at 0s and take 3s. When I look at the time scale of parts moving the added step finished at 4s.

Any idea why it's doing this and how to fix it?



Could you share your files, I'd be happy to take a look - or maybe a video capture showing the behaviour? Can you move the key to 3s?

Alternatively, if you are after a new way of producing nice assembly documentation, check out cadasio.
