The Animation and Basic Motion options work well for most animations, including movement along straights, and gradual curves in a path.  What do you do when the path is not a single direction? To accomplish movement around sharp radii corners or a closed loop you will need to use the SOLIDWORKS Motion Add-In, and Motion Analysis.   Create the path component with a stationary reference object. Mate the moving component to the path using the path mate. Define a velocity results […]
