key frame sequences


New member
Does anyone know why I can't animate using different slides I took of an assembly? What I did was redefined how a part was assembled, such as changing its offset by 1inch frame by frame. When I add all of these slides into a key frame sequence and press regenerate, it moves okay. But once I insert that sequence into the animation and press run, nothing moves. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe you have to use joints rather than rigid constraints. This way PRO/E understands how the parts should move relative to each other.

This is not the problem of rigid or joints since Eblack want to make an animation not the Mechanism.

First check the key fram sequence carefully, better is to generat the sequence from start, if still it does not work, then please send me the assembly file.
