Using individual SVG animation frames as creation templates for Fusion 360 animation files

Would it be possible to create and then superimpose a Fusion 360 .cad file on a single SVG animation frame?

If so, would it be possible to save the Fusion 360 .cad file and then advance the SVG animation frame to the next frame?

If so, would it be possible to create and then superimpose a second Fusion 360 .cad file on the next SVG animation frame?

If so, would it be possible to repeat the process of creating and superimposing individual .cad files on individual SVG animation frames again and again - also known as an Iterated function system

 

If so, please tell me (us) how to do that.

 

Thanks for all the fish 😉

Hi @sumwareovertherainbeau 

There is an app that you can install that will export SVG files from planar faces. Here is a link to an arctic that goes through the steps: Export an SVG File in Fusion 360 : 5 Steps (with Pictures).

 

Fusion 360 itself, cannot create the animations from the SVG files. You will need to use a different program to animate SVG files.

 

Have you looked at the Animation workspace. The tools in this workspace are used to create assembly instructions and show how a design will work. Here is a link to a video I created a couple years ago that introduces the Animation workspace.

Thanks,

Good afternoon, Dan,

To begin...

*After watching your "Module 9: Creating an animation for assembly
instructions" and reviewing Vladimir Mariano's 5 step video for exporting
an SVG File in Fusion 360, I decided to use Fusion 360 for my project, but
not SVG; I will use individual .avi and / or .mov frames as creation
templates instead. My decision was based on the convenience of .avi and
.mov frames. Whereas SVG has a text-based format that can be created in
HTML or CSS, .avi and .mov frames can be generated with motion picture
cameras.*

The rest follows in the attached file "at Dan.odt'

I apologize for not replying sooner, but I had to touch a few bases and
rectify some problems - as you will find explained in the attachment.

I look forward to your comments and opinions,

Regards,

David Sicks

Hi @sumwareovertherainbeau 

The attachment didn't work. If you're attaching the file via an email, this won't work. You'll need to log into the forum and attach the file.

Thanks,
