Animate 2D Mechanism Sketcher CATIA

Hello everyone :)

I recently participated in a CATIA Talk and it was awesome! I've been invited by the CATIA Team to perform a live demonstration of the 3DExperience Release 2021x On Cloud.

I wanted my topic to be useful and original. So I decided to pick something that I guess few CATIA users actually know it exist: Constraint Animation in Sketcher.

This feature allows you to animate a 2D mechanism in a sketch. You just need to draw different shapes that represent parts, assemble them and control a free constraint. In that case, I created a Piston mechanism and I control the rotation angle of the crankshaft.

Watch the video and learn more about the capabilities of mechanism animation in Sketcher. The scenario is very easy to reproduce so feel free to try it and test new mechanisms :)
