Use this function to simulate moving of any parts along a line, poly-line or spline. This can be applied for visualizations or to check whether parts can be assembled. The objects are moved along a guideline in a set speed. In addition, you can choose whether you only want to move the parts or whether they have to be rotated as well.
After clicking the OK button, seize the guide line first. This may be a line, poly-line, spline or an arc. Then seize the parts and the simulation starts.
Enter here into how many equal parts the guide line has to be divided. The higher the value, the more regular and the more fluent the simulated movement will be.
Wait in milliseconds after each single movement. This value controls the speed of the simulated movement.
Move and align
The objects are not only moved along the guide line, but also rotated around this line. This means, if you have a “sharp bend” in the line, the parts will be rotated along this bend.
