insert a piston and a connecting rod
make contentric this surfaces
select right plane of the piston and click on matte command
find connecting rods front plane from feature tree
make them coincident
make this survaces concentric
use matte command again and select this surfaces
click on ok
add 11 more piston and connecting rod . unfortunately you have to make same things for all
I tried to find a way to copy mates. I didn't.
isn't u think as u joint your connecting road as per it cylinderhead is also pettern 45 degree + 17 mm increment in crankshaft axies direction.....
u can see this photograph & clear about it....
waiting for your reply....................
I'm doing the assembly of piston rods. In this image I hid the cylinder so I can illustrate the piston rods' position. Am I doing it right? I'm just confused because the piston rods overlap eachother
" I think you made coincident the connecting rods front plane with pistons (that on the left side) right plane"
That is what you instructed in steps 3-8.
"delete this reletionship and use the piston that on the right"
I cannot understand this.
ok.. please go to http://grabcad.com/questions/tutorial-how-to-make-engine-part-12 and examine the step 5th. I think you passed without seeing the body moving.
there is a mistake Brylee. check your crankcase and make sure that you gave the correct relationship to pistons and connecting rods. as I see the connecting rod (that on the right) isn't in the middle of the piston. I think you made coincident the connecting rods front plane with pistons (that on the left side) right plane. delete this reletionship and use the piston that on the right
Check to make sure your piston holes dont line up exactly to each other, there should be difference between the two, then your connecting rods will align correctly. Hope this helps..
Brylle I believe that you missed one action in tutorial number twelve that is step 5.
An alternative to inserting and mating 12 separate pistons and connectors would be to make a piston assembly and then insert the piston assembly into the main assembly. That way there is less mating to do in the main assembly. Be sure to make the piston assembly flexible upon insertion.
where i can get 2d drawings for this projects????
