Depends on what level of animation you need. If simple and nothing too crazy needed, then Keyshot or Bunkshot.

If you want some of the best controls for animation, rendering, and modeling then Modo hands down. Depending on how you'd like to control the model then I'd recommend the "CAD Loader" as a plug in.

I would recommend using Blender for animations. As it is very cheap (free) and it does a very good job. But be ware any program that does a good job at animation has a steep learning curve. www.blender.org check it out. You can import OBJ and or stl files into Blender from SolidWorks. There is a free OBJ exporter that works inside of SolidWorks.

I've seen a animation video from Modena Engines. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U09mE-xcUxM

I really like to know what kind of animation software they use to create this. I see some effects of adobe after effects. But the assemblage animation looks really cool. Could it be right that it is created with KeyShot?
