Animation Designer: Animate Any Part Regardless of Structure

If you make products that have moving parts, chances are you want to see them in action and need to know kinematic properties such as displacements, velocities, accelerations, and even collisions. Animation Designer in NX 12 will do just that. The video below shows how to get started by defining what parts should move in a kinematic study. Learn how to:


  • Prepare parts in an assembly for an animation regardless of assembly structure
  • Selection techniques to speed though Rigid Group creation
  • Neat color modes to visually check progress
  • How to redefine Rigid Groups


(view in My Videos)


This video will help you get started with creating kinematic studies using Animation Designer. For a complete demonstration, ask your sales partner for NX Animation Designer, product ID NX30178.

Very cool!

Is there already kinematics possibility of Automation Designer?
