Object fall off screen when programming

Hello! I’m a teacher attempting to learn Robot Mesh Studio so I can use it with my students and I’m stuck. I built an object and programmed it, but when I press play, the entire build just falls off the screen. I’m not sure where I went wrong or why it is happening.

I wanted to build just a simple mechanism where the motor would turn one gear.

Any thoughts on what I might need to change/fix?

Hi MMichelle.

Gravity, alas. You must place a surface under your assembly for it to sit on.

The Base Plate, Full Field and Floor from the Misc category of the parts library are not subject to gravity.
