Having problems with the last animated bit


#1

Hi there. I am not new to sketchUp But I am new to Pro. I have a Dynamic component that I am trying to animate. I imported this folding model from another place. I then added one last piece to extend the floor (the orange bit!). I can use the original coding to animate unfolding the first section but the last bit of floor (the orange piece) I can’t get to animate without drilling into the component. The White button is used to fold the whole assembly

Please I need help

Hi mate. I need your help again. I have had a design change and I have no Idea how to even tackle this animation. In the model you can see the three stages of the folding floor. I have added the last model you have helped me with as well. I would really appreciate your help it would get me out of trouble with a, well, challenging client

Thanks in advance

PS your a legend!!

from the last, nest each unit into the one above, via drag and drop using outliner, then swap alternative axis points at rotation (this produces the stack) from top to bottom, then swap the sign of each rotation as it references its parent
