Problems/Questions on Animation with Positional Representation

247 Views, 2 Replies

I am having problems with creating positional representations. I create simple representations that go from closed to open and when I finish creating the animation I have a position representation called WorkPR1 that overwrites any positional representations I have created. What do I need to do to get my representations to be used or how do I modify the WorkPR1 representation to show what I want?

 

I'm using 2014

Inventor Studio will create the WorkPR1, WorkPR2,.... WorkPRn...  Pos Reps automatically. They should only be visible within the Inventor Studio Environment. You'll notice that the "WorkPR1" Pos Reps will disappear if you delete the first segment from your animation timeline. The WorkPr positional reps should disappear from the Positional Representation node in the browser when exiting the Studio Environment. 

 

I was comparing behavior between 2013 and 2014 and it looks like I'm having some difficulties working with Pos Reps in Inventor Studio as well. I will reach out to the development team regarding this issue. Thanks for posting this.

 

Best Regards,

I'm having this same problem. I'm trying to transistion between a closed and open position using suppressed and enabled constraints, but I can't figure out how to adjust them. The constraints show up on the timeline, but no change is visible when animated.

 

Thanks,
