How to position a part in Autodesk Inventor

By Sander Tijssen on 23 May 21:52 10 answers 541 views 4 comments

How do you place a part in a assembly off centre. I can only join them exactly in the middle like you see on the picture. I want to be able to move it along the extrusion profile.

    The best thing to do is constrain the parts using work planes. ( xy, xz, yz) You need to eliminate the two degrees of freedom to still allow this movement. If your work planes are not in a good location for positioning the parts, then do the following.

    1. constrain the bottom face of the first part to the top face of the second part.

    2. Constrain one side of the top part (using the flush option for the basic contraint) to one side of the bottom part.

    3. Use the distance measure option and measure the distance from the side of the top part that is close to the center of the bottom part, to the opposing side of the bottom part. Copy that number to the clipbord.

    4. Go to the flush constraint previously created and paste that distance into the offset. The divide it by 2 in that value option. example: (1.625/2) It will do the math for you.

    5. It should now allow you to drag the top part side to side like you want to.

    You won't have the capacity to do those things full time and it is elusive a considerable measure of low maintenance paying positions in those fields. Your most solid option is to attempt and land an all day position in one of the fields you are keen on and afterward deal with a portion of the others as an afterthought as a side interest. On the off chance that you wind up being gainful at the side interest you would then be able to consider exchanging your employment over in the event that you wind up getting a charge out of the leisure activity more. It is in reality
    great that you are keen on such a variety of things, landing a position in those fields can be hard so by having numerous intrigue you have a superior shot of discovering something you will appreciate
