I thought it would be nice to make a more advanced animation using the A2plus workbench. :D Computer Aided Design is something i really enjoy. I hope posting CAD models here is a little motivation for everyone involved in programming FreeCAD. Thanks to Obleisk79 for the A2plus workbench tip...

After starting a new A2plus document and constraining the degrees of freedom for the added parts, i altered the rotation angle in the properties panel for the wheel. All other constrained parts followed the changed position after clicking the update icon. All there was left to do, was to go to the main Menu, Tools -> Save picture... and make the screen shots. The animated Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) was made with GIMP.

The good old steam locomotive.

Nice! Do you know that you can create the images rather comfortably if you know just a little bit of Python?

Thank you for your reply. All i know about python, it is a constrictor snake. I have no knowledge of programming! I have to rely on the tool that is given to me, that would be FreeCAD. And i am not the only one...
