Learn how to add motors to animations. See how we can add a simulation of a real-life motor and control our assembly in a similar fashion to how it may be controlled in a real-world scenario using motors.
- [Instructor] Using motors is another method to generate…precise and more complex animations.…When adding motors I have even further control and options…to my possible motions, this can help replicate…the motion with an even more realistic approach.…So to add a motor I can just take a look in my motion…manager here and this icon here is adding a motor.…Click on that and I have a couple options here, first I…can choose if I want a rotary motor or a linear motor,…in this case let's say I want to rotate my first link…about the base so I'm going to choose a rotary motor…and I have a couple of options here.…
First the motor location so that would be the object…that I'd like to rotate, so in this case my link here.…Somewhere here I would say.…The next option is the motor direction, so which way I'd…like to turn or rotate so I can use any cylindrical face…here, notice that will show us a red arrow here.…Showing me the direction of the rotary motor, I can change…the direction here if I'd like, just with this reverse…
