```Add a PlotRange option to your plot statement so that all frames of the
animation will have the same plot range.

Hello,

I'm trying to use dynamic visualizer 1.1 to graph a MovePlot3D
expression showing the rotation of a plane but I keep getting error
Expression for MovePlot3D". I have included the Mathematica notebook
of the MoviePlot3D expression I'm trying to graph as an attachment
with this post (I hope that's allowed).

What I am trying to do is visualize how the plane of a car's wheel
changes as the semi-trailing arm it is attached to rotates from, say,
q=0 degrees (parallel to ground) to q= -90 degrees (trailing arm
rotated up 90 degrees).

I am able to graph it using just Mathematica 5.0 after loading
<<Graphics`Animation` but Mathematica doesn't use the same scale for
each individual graph (for example, the z range might be 10 for one
graph and 400 for another) so that you can't get an accurate picture
of how the plane's orientation really changes as the trailing arm
rotates. So my question is, can I use dynamic visualizer to animate
how the wheel's plane changes as the trailing arm rotates like you
could, for example, with a CAD program?
