That is absolutely great. I love the trampoline!

What other software and/or add-ons did you use to do this?

This is very cool. I am going to assume that you used Animator to
create it. If this is the case then you may not have hit Inventor's
limit but rather ran out of memory in Animator. The solution to that is
to break it up into several segments.

The trampoline made me think you used another software, but I figured out
how you did it. Great work.

It looks like you wasted a lot of time playing around, but I'd bet you
learned a ton about IV assemblies and constraints.

Didn't take long for someone to comment on that. There are 3 little
gears with cranks driven by the red gear with the connector arm. Those
provide the different reciprocating movements that rock things at the
different speeds. ----------
