Switching Between Construct Mode and Playback Mode
In the 3-D Toolbar, you can toggle between Construct Mode and Playback Mode to perform specific tasks in the 3-D Workspace.
In Construct Mode, you can add and connect modeling components, and edit their initial conditions. For many multibody components, the 3-D objects will position themselves with respect to each other when they are connected. In some cases, for example, models with a closed loop, the assemble feature can be used to position 3-D objects based on their initial conditions. For a model with a closed loop, you can click Unenforce Constraints (
) to allow initial conditions to be edited for one of the joints in the loop before you reassemble the model.
In Playback Mode, you can play an animation of your 3-D model simulation and specify camera tracking options.
