To Define Connection Status
Use the Connection Status command to make a servo motor connection inactive or disabled during a specific period of time during the animation. Use this command, for example, to illustrate disassembly of your model, or to focus on the movement of one connection at the expense of others.
1. Click Connection Status. The Connection Status dialog box opens.
2. Select a connection.
3. Enter a time and select a reference event from the After list. The connection status begins after the reference event and entered time. The time you enter can be negative with respect to the selected event, but cannot occur before the start time of the animation.
4. In the State area, select Enable or Disable.
5. In the Lock/Unlock area, select Unlock or Lock.
6. Click Apply. The appropriate connection icon appears in the timeline.
