Use MotionDesigner to add, name and design motions. Each motion has a unique name, shown in the Motion name-tab.

To Link a Motion to a Part

In MechDesigner, we add a Motion FB to the model and then edit to link a Motion, that we design in MotionDesigner [and identified by a Motion name-tab] to a Part in the MechDesigner model.

In detail, the steps are:

STEP 1: Add a Motion FB to the graphic-area
2.Click the graphic-area

The Motion FB is now in the graphic-area.
