Adjustable Assemblies Animation

Hello. 

Could someone please help me.

I have to use ERA to animate two motors which are supposed to work at same time. The motors are intended to move components from a Adjustable assembly. Both motors work fine separately, however, the first one stops while duration time bars got simultaneous.

Thanks.

Re: Adjustable Assemblies Animation

Yes. I have an answer, but maybe not what you wanted. That is a limitation in ST7 and before. But this limitation is lifted in ST8 -- in ST8 you can have the two motors working simultaneously.

Re: Adjustable Assemblies Animation

due to dan's answer that this is a limitation of ST7...

 

Might you be able to drive one motor and use a gear relation to drive the other motion as a temporary work around.?

 

dont know how complicated yout assy is... just a thought

Re: Adjustable Assemblies Animation

It might work. Let´s make some tests. Thanks.

@SeanCresswell I don't believe it's limited to two --  can't see why it would be -- but that's all I've tried so far. Of course you should get ST8 here in just a couple weeks and you can tell me! :-)

@dcstaples ....well, there goes any chance of concentrating on anything "work" related for the next  2 weeks then. Now I'll have to begin stalking the licensing & download servers. Robot wink

 

Panasonic [NZ] guys will come over all funny, when they see their CCTV boom rotating, extending & pivoting upward, animated out from the enclosed trailer.....and will gladly report back on it. [if I can get it to work... Robot LOL]
