How to Constrain a Driveshaft in Inventor 2013

By Dallas on 15 Apr 16:32 1 answer 0 comments

Hey guys, I am working on a model rc car and I am having some problems constraining a drive shaft. I believe it is called a dogbone type of shaft and I am trying to constrain it into the cup. I attached a picture of what I am trying to do. I cannot seem to get both sides constrained properly because they are not directly in line and are not level. The shaft will fit between them , but I just cant seem to constrain it there. Thanks for any help.

    This is the best I could approximate. Shaft length needs to be exactly the distance between the two points in the cups. Hope this helps.
