Afternoon Tea Ferris Wheel Toy Blog Part 2

This is a two part SOLIDWORKS tutorial to create an Afternoon Tea Ferris Wheel Toy. In Part 2 of this tutorial you can learn how to assemble parts, and run a motion analysis to create a moving Ferris Wheel. The decals and accessory parts for the design are available to download here.


Using the finished assembly a motion analysis will be created using motors, contacts and gravity. The analysis can then be exported to SOLIDWORKS Visualize to become a rendered animation which is featured at the end of the tutorial.

To recreate the parts of the Ferris Wheel you can watch Part 1 of the tutorial here.
