One of my team members did a post awhile back about using animation inside studio with Inventor Pro Simulation. Not every company has a version of Pro so I want to show how you can have animation inside the studio environment using positional representations. This is only one way of adding animation into your studio environment.

Using Overlay Views with Inventor

When I was a designer I always had to show extended and retracted positions of any item in my design that moved. This took some time to set-up worrying about capturing the information, placing it, rotating it and of course if there was a design change just another item I had to make sure I updated. With Inventor this is no longer an issue using Overlay view in my drawing environment.

Overlay drawing views use positional representations to show an assembly in multiple positions in a single view. Overlay views are available for unbroken base, projected, and auxiliary views. Each Overlay view can reference a design view representation independent of the parent view.

Positional Representation animations in Inventor Studio 2009


Inventor 2009 now allows any positional representations to be communicated to Inventor’s Studio environment. This allows you to create an animation of a design transitioning from one assembly position to another.

Open or Closed?, That is the question……

Every time we design some piece of equipment that has motion to it, we need to show it in multiple positions. Is it OPEN? is it CLOSED? help me understand what this thing is doing?

These are all questions I am sure we have all heard from someone trying to assemble a design or someone from outside of the engineering department, who might not have the print reading savy of you.

Well let us all breath a bit easier now that we can create Positional Representations in Inventor.

We can use those to create overlay views right on a drawing view. This will help realy that difficult information a lot easier.
