I have uploaded a data block in ME Scope and am trying to create M# links to animate my model.

I keep getting an error message that nearly 50 points were not assigned M#'s which kills my animation.

I have uploaded a couple of pictures of the error messages.

I don't really understand this error, as the M#'s in the data block are no different than the ones that work.... not sure what I am doing wrong.

Please help!

Well, this brings back some memories.....from what I can recall, there are essentially 3 steps to animate the structure:

1. Draw or import model of structure

2. Import measurement data into a Data Block file or a Shape Table file

3. Assign M#'s in the data block or shape table to the DOF (i.e. points and directions) of the model.

Are you sure you preformed step 3?

Hey Jim,

Yes... they matched.

I have actually modeled this installation in another ODS software (Clear Motion) before and now that I have an ME Scope license I only modeled a portion of the installation so I actually have more data than I need. By importing that extra data which didn't match any points, it created the error message. Was a good learning experience.

ME Scope software is so powerful.... amazing tool to have. Glad I have a license now.

Thanks and have a good weekend,
