Introduction Model animations are increasingly used as presentation tools to ensure that the manufacturing process goes smoothly. They can be used to ensure part clearance, depict quantity, relative location, and interaction between parts. With animations that allow for a force, torque, or motion to be applied, moving components can be observed in their exploded and non-exploded view with ease. The primary reason for animations is to show the assembly and disassembly of an assortment of parts. In addition to aiding in manufacturing animation of design models and simulation of motion in assembly models these animations can help managers, sales associates and planners create a suitable market for this product. This can be done by focusing on a particular component in an assembly and, through an animation, showing its specific function while under moments and stresses from the rest of the assembly. Although finite element analysis is not possible to depict within the animation application,
