Hi folks, and Happy New Year to everybody.

Tod’s been busy with kinematics again, and has prepared yet another informative video on this topic. He provides a couple of nice tips to help simulate moving parts around, like a robot, where you need to first pick up the piece, move it with the help of kinematics, and then drop it.

Enjoy!

Here is Part 2 of Tod’s introduction to 3DVIA Composer kinematics. Remember that with Composer, the goal is to use kinematics to facilitate the creation of animated procedures.

Enjoy the tutorial.

And we’re always looking for more ideas for future videos. Please let us know what you’d like to see!

In this video, Tod introduces you to some uses for 3DVIA Composer kinematics, and then walks you through the basics of how to get it up and running.

One of the very good points Tod makes is that you don’t always need to fully define 100% of the kinematics. When you’re building an animated sequence, a combination of kinematics plus transformations can produce a very effective result.

Enjoy!
