AnimationLab --> Exploded View?
Read 286 times
* February 14, 2020, 02:48:09 AM
Hello everyone,

Is there an option in AnimationLab to create an exploded view of an assembly?
If so, is there an example to look at?

Thank you for your help

Hi,

wishful thinking?   :)

There is no routine to do this automatically.
Using the Key Frames Editor, it is possible to make actors of each individual part.
These are then animated to explode the assembly to the positions you choose.

Look here for some examples:

just reverse the processes.

Hi. Could you please clarify a few things. As Tim stated its not automatic. but will differ slightly depending on your requirements. Are we talking 2D or 3d drawing. Are we talking an animated explosion or static image, If animated are you wanting explosion or assembly.

From reading your post it actually sounds like you may be just after a static exploded diagram, whether 2d or 3d.  If that is the case, then as Tim stated, the simple answer is no.

For static exploded diagrams., I just save a copy of the file. Decide on what view point I want (that is the most important decision when dealing with 3D). And in the copy I just manually drag things where I want them. For animation, the principal is the same.  It just takes longer as one needs to record the start and end points of the objects animation.

Thanks for your contributions,

doesn't look good to me.

We are talking about 3D assemblies that were created in a * TCW.
For example a frame made of steel pipes with built-in electrical components such as lights, spotlights etc.
Another very nice example is the knife that can be found on the page linked above.

Are we talking about an animated explosion or a static image?
I would primarily like a static picture for the documentation of the assembly, i.e. without movement.

Quote
If animated, would you like an explosion or assembly?
Nice, but is not needed.
An animated explosion could be used as promotional gifts for a presentation. But the effort?

Quote
For static explosion diagrams, I only save a copy of the file.
That's my problem. Everything should remain in one file. The administration demands that.

... because the start and end points of the object animation must be recorded.
And the way (better path), as in the example with the bouncing ball?

Hello Dean,

we say that names are smoke and mirrors. So I'm not angry.  :)
Torfinn calls me Surk√•l, you call me Sam.  :o
The future we show what name still exists.  ::)

Back to the topic.
Thanks, just like in the video, I want to have it.

@Tim

You can apply for an extension - another 15 days.
That should be enough?
