revolving blinds animation


New member
A collegue has a revolving blind modeled and would need to animate its operation: opening and closing.

Basically he has a spiral shape that when you would pull on one end it would unroll.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

you need MDX license , making assembly using connections and then using Mechanism module create slot follower connection. After this create a driver, (a servo motor will work) you can run your anlysis and then animation.

If you can send your assembly I will do it for you.
