I have cad file of conveyor belt including details in the belt with 2 gears at each end, I want to animate it with XPresso.
All the tutorials available they animate the spline or cloner parameter, but What I have is ready CAD file of a Conveyor Belt, so I cannot use cloner or spline wrap. I want to animate the ready cad file belt.
You can perhaps split up the cad model for use with cloner/ wrap.
Assuming the conveyor belt is made of multiple repeating sections, you can select one section (polygon mode, then select one poly in that section and hit u then w keys to select connected, or select them manually) then run the split command. this will copy the selection to a new object and leave the selection in the original. Then you can clone them or copy them in a line and spline wrap. You can do this to the cogs also so they can be animated too.
