I'm a physicist teacher and I'm trying to create a code that modifies a text during the timeline evolution. The idea is make a display that show some information such the position of an object while it is moving. For this, I was thinking in make a code that

  1. get the information about an object (its position, angle between its edges, this things)
  2. create a text showing this information
  3. create a key frame to 'save' the information and them a loop for repeat this process along the movement of the object.

If someone can help me, I really appreciate it.

animate your objects position...

and you will get:
