    I didn't know about Photoscape - I used Quicktime to make video (but not able to do GIF) - very much appreciated

    another small trick in the rendering - add a small radius to all the sharp corners before rendering - you won't believe how much better your models render :)

    Good job. I was making the gifs in Photoshop, but they were always messed up on GrabCAD. Using Photoscape fixed the problem.
    I wish you had made this tutorial months ago so I could have skipped all of the mistakes I made :)
