How to show two DOF to animate tool path

vvskmohanvvskmohan Member Posts: 2
I'm trying to give two DOF to the tool to demonstrate machining process. Tool has to rotate about its axis (Z axis) and able to translate in X axis. However, I'm able to show only one DOF at a time with the animate option.

Please let me know the suggestions on this?

    You can "fake" it by adding a rack and pinion mate relation to make it rotate when the X moves (it will spin "backwards" when the X translation reverses though...)
