Scale SOLIDWORKS Animation (Motion Study)

Article by Sanja Srzic updated February 25, 2015


In a SOLIDWORKS animation (motion study), the position of a key point on the time frame indicates the beginning or the end of a motion or a property change.  Dragging key points left or right changes the duration of a motion.  To scale entire SOLIDWORKS animation, select the top right key point and use Alt + Drag.
