AutoCAD Inventor :: Manual Animation Of Ratchet And Pawl Mechanisms In Assembly Files?

Apr 26, 2004

problem when manually animating a model ratchet and pawl mechanism in an assembly file. One can get the pawl to track the ratchet wheel surface OK but there seems to be nothing to stop the ratchet wheel going in both directions, contrary to real life experience. I have used transitional constraints to link pawl surfaces with ratchet wheel surfaces but there seems to be no drive constraint which will operate in this circumstance.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Tube And Pipe Assembly Styles Don't Translate Into Other Assembly Files

Feb 9, 2012

I have encountered a problem with the Tube and Pipe styles. 

As you can see, I have a rack assembly with a custom tube and pipe style. A wire as a tube in orange, and a tube support in white. Both have their seperate colorations at a style in the tube and pipe styles editor

When placing the rack assembly into the main assembly, it reverts to the coppor coloration I changed from the original style.

Steps I've taken:

Exported the styles .xml and Imported the styles into the master tubeandpipe.iam 

Imported the user created .xml styles into the main assembly file nothing seems to work

AutoCAD Inventor :: Animation Of Assembly

Feb 17, 2012

Im having trouble animating an assembly i made. It is a twin cylinder foot pump for car tyres, nothing special. When i try and animate it i have trouble getting the pump to move.

Jun 17, 2011

When I record an animation in .avi using the Drive Constraint command here's what pops :

-The codec you selected to compress this AVI video stream cannot handle the current screen color depth and/or the graphics frame size. Please try another codec.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Studio Assembly Animation - Part Parameter

Nov 8, 2013

I have an assembly inside of Inventor Studio.  One of the parts inside of the assembly has a parameter that I would like to animate. When I select the "Parameters" function within the "Animate" tab on the ribbon, I get an error:

"There are no favorite parameters defined."

This worked fine when I tried the same thing with only the part inside of Inventor Studio, but not when the part is included inside of an assembly.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Project Files Vs Assembly Files?

Mar 8, 2013

I am deep into my first Inventor project. I am approaching the point where I would like to make a comprehensive set of drawings with bills of material etc. I have discovered that all this time I have actually been working in one big assembly file. My main project file is NOT a project file (so I have discovered). It is a *.iam file. 

So, my question is, should I create a project file, and then add my main assembly to it? Should one normally create a new Project file for each new job? What does one gain by doing this versus simply using the *.iam file?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Archiving Big Assembly Files

Nov 16, 2012

I have several projects that have some very big complex assembly files which are taking up a lot of space on our company drive. I need to compress and archive these large files to free up space on the drive. I know that shrinkwrap is an option to simplify assembly files, any optimum way of compressing large assembly files and reducing the file size considerably ?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Unresolved Files In Assembly

Mar 19, 2013

I have an assembly that has a component that has not only been deleted from this assembly, but has been removed from the vault.  When I try to select a similar file on my local, just to get through this I get the followong error message and this cycle keeps going in circles.  Wanting me to point to where this deleted file is.

 This assembly remains unresolved and as a result of that I cannot check it into the vault.

Another frustrating things about his is in the dialog window that wants you to select a different file, there is no option to either select from the CC or the vault.  Why?

I just hope the only solution is not to recreate this assembly.  Because this is a subassembly used in upper level assemblies.  Speaking of which those upper lever assemblies wont check into the vault either because of this issue.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sharing Assembly Files Without Using Vault

Nov 6, 2012

We do not use VAULT. We're using network shared folder with 3 machine.

In some cases three users opening same assembly and sub assemblies. In this case Inventor showing us an error like "You can not save file. Use save-as" But in this case it's impossible to work share files.

We're opening / using same project file (ipj).  I remember that older versions of Inventor give us to chance that not save some subassemblies of main assembly. In this case you may save newer version of assembly files..

How can I share network folder to share my assembly files with the other colleagues? 

Using Inventor 2013 and not Vault. Because we're using Linux file server .

AutoCAD Inventor :: Conversion Of Assembly Files To Pro / E Compatibility

Jun 26, 2012

I'm running into a file conversion issue at work. I use Inventor 2008 and i need to have my assembly miodels analyzed by stress engineering via Pro/E Wildfire.

I've tried converting the assembly file to .iges and .step. However, the assemblies are jumbled in the conversion. All the parts are there, but the constraints are not.  In the past, the assemblies have been small enough that the stress engineer was able to reassemble the parts in Pro/E. This current project, however, is much to large to do so. 

If I were to purchase Inventor 2013, could I save the files with the Pro/E native file extensions directly?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Assembly / Subassembly Files In Parts List

Feb 4, 2013

We have an issue regarding Parts Lists. We currently produce a 'master parts list drawing' for the jobs we produce. This drawing has 2 rolled up parts list on it -

1 - purchased parts - so buying can order all the required parts in one go.

2 - manufactured parts - so production know which and how many parts to make.

Both of these can be setup in Inventor (using filters) so they display only the correct parts from the BOM. However, neither of these show assembly / subassembly files (and consequently drawings). Is there any way of creating a parts list that can show assembly files only?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Fails To Follow All Assembly Updates At IDW Of Mid To Big Files

May 19, 2013

I use IDW file as “fine” checker of my assemblies design. Sometimes it is much easier to see general picture in variety of spots and set dimensions to check the designed assembly using IDW file.

Working within mid to big assemblies Inventor mostly fails to follow the opened assembly IDW file with actual assembly. When switch from assembly to IDW Inventor may indicate the update sign at IDW but finally did not update all changes. After the “Update” sign has been used there is no any chance to force Inventor to make one more update. I mean there is no any manual update tool or way to force one more update. The only one way is to close the IDW and open it again. It quite time consuming process.

The second problem opened IDW file is automatically updates somewhere in background and in most cases makes troubles of changing parameters in assembly or subassemblies since it somehow can catch up changes first when it opened but not active. User cannot prolong working without either updating IDW or closing it. Either way it takes too much time.

some ways to manually force IDW update and to postpone IDW files from automatically update in background?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Multi Body Cut Derive - Manual Editing In Part

I have a multi body part with an extruded cut through all solids.  Each solid is derived out to its own part.  I edited the extrude feature in the multi body part and removed one solid from the selection set.  The cut was correctly deleted from the solid, but when I open the part its still there.  The only way to make it update correctly is to manually edit the derive  feature in the part.  Caught it just before it went off for cutting.  2012 SP2, all hotfixes, win7 64 bit.
