AutoCAD LT :: Find Minimum Inside Diameter For Conduit - Cables In Tube

May 1, 2012

Using LT 2009

I have to find the minimum inside diameter for a conduit which will hold several cables of similar diameter (0.258").  The number of cables per conduit will be 10, 16 and 20.

I have played around with the program but I can't figure out a way to make this work efficiently.  I am trying to account for the fact that different numbers of cables will (or won't) cluster so evenly or uniformly.  That is, with different quantities of cables, there will be some room for the cables to orient unevenly to fill the available spaces.

I have included a .bmp file with 10 and 19 cables in the cluster.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Crimp Or Crush Conduit Pipe Or Tube

Nov 3, 2011

I'm contemplating creating a put-together and take-apart frame using conduit, or pipe or tube.  After specifying member length, I wish to crimp or crush each member a specific length, fillet the member ends so that they are completely round, and then places holes that are concentric to the filleted ends or other locations within the "flat" area of the conduit, or pipe or tube.

How do I model such members to follow the specifications above?

How would I crimp members at locations other than the ends?

I'll be using Autodesk Product Design Suite 2012 Ultimate.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Minimum Segment Length Violation In Tube & Pipe Runs?

Jan 2, 2014

I keep getting this minimum segment length message after running tubing routes. I've already configured the tube style and entered the minimum length I want. I place tube fittings before I run tubing, so I don't include fittings/couplings in my tube style. The lengths of the segments are equal to or longer than the segment rule I entered, so I'm not sure why I'm getting this error message. I also get a message saying that a segment will violate the rule once fittings are placed, even though I've opted out of using fittings in the style. To get around this error I've been having to go into each route and edit the sketch to make the problem segments longer.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Calculating Tube Length (not Tube And Piping)?

Mar 16, 2013

I have a question about calculating the maximum tube length. Why do i ask this, because you can just measure it on drawing?

I'm building a parametric model for building simple storage tanks, and the goal is to get a complete BOM out of the model without any difficulties.

I have 4 possibilities of tube positioning on the tank. (see image)

1. A tube that stands in the center of the axis of the main tank.

2. A tube that stands in the center of the axis of the main tank, but under an angle

3. A tube that doesn't stand in the center of the axis of the main tank.

4. A tube that doesn't stand in the center of the axis of the main tank, but under an angle

These 4 possibilities can be flush with the inside of the tank or not.

Is there a easy way to determinate the longest point from the front of the tube? This longest measurement will be the length i need to get into my description for the BOM.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Repair Tube Constraints In Tube And Pipe?

May 27, 2013

How do I repair a tubing constraint?

I use tubing in inventor, I always attached tube to whatever fittings I am using and everything is fine but if something gets moved that the end of the tube loses its contraint I'm ready to jump off a cliff!

Is there any way to get the end of the 3D sketch contrained to the fitting again?

Up until now I have always had to deleted the route and started over. Inventor Pro 2014

AutoCAD Inventor :: Proxy Of Workplane Inside Pattern / Inside Part / Inside An Assembly

Oct 14, 2013

There are many examples of creating rectangular patterns, but not many, if any, of interrogating existing patterns.I have attached the files and a screenshot of a rectangular part inside an assembly. The part contains a rectangular pattern of holes and do I get hold of each proxy of the workplane in the pattern?In other words I don't know what to put in the for loop at the end of this code fragment:
If _invApp.Documents.Count = 0 Then MsgBox("Need to open an the assembly document") ReturnEnd If If _invApp.ActiveDocument.DocumentType <> DocumentTypeEnum.kAssemblyDocumentObject Then MsgBox("Need to have an Assembly document active") ReturnEnd If Dim asmDoc As Assembly Document asmDoc = _invApp.ActiveDocument Dim asmDef As AssemblyComponentDefinition asmDef = asmDoc.ComponentDefinition im occurrences As ComponentOccurrencesoccurrences.

I would like to create a cable modeling this transition to make sure it can be routed around other components. I can't seem to find how to lock the length for the cable from point A to point B, it only changes based on what points I add on its path.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Make Cables For Cable Stayed Bridge

Nov 15, 2012

It is a while ago since I used Inventor, so i'm now just practising a bit to get the hang of it.

As a start a cable stayed bridge looked fun. So I made the towers and the roaddeck. But now comes the tricky part, and that are the cables themselves. When I started I just thought I could use the 3D sketsh feature. But as it turns out, that feature is not available in the Assembley environment. I could just make the cables as a Part and then insert them in the assembley, but that is to much work. As you can see from the pictures below the holes I made in the towers to accomodate the cables do not line up with the edge of the roaddeck on which I want to secure them. So the cables make to much angles for me to make the as a part. And besides that, I just think it could be done more easily. 

Below you can see the images I made of the bridge so far. The first one is an overall image, the second one shows the tower with the holes (if the holes won't work, I can always make something else), and the third image shows the area on which the cables will be attached to the roaddeck.

Can this be done in the Assembley environment? 

Note: I planned this to be a cable stayed bridge, not a suspension bridge. But tips to make this into a susension bridge are welcome as well.

For the record: I'm using Inventor 2012

3ds Max Modeling :: How To Model A Flexible Metal Wire Conduit

Mar 13, 2012

I am trying to model a flexible metal wire conduit. I was going to use a spring, then I wanted to have it follow a spline, but can't figure out how to do this. I vaguely remember doing something like this in the past but can't remember how I did it. I want to model it as opposed to using maps. It will be a fairly close up rendering.

AutoCad 3D :: Minimum Distance Between 3D Objects?

Mar 16, 2012

what the minimum distance between two 3D rectangles is. I can do trial and error using the INTERFERE command (Acad 2012) and move the 2 groups until they stop hitting each other, but I wanted to see if there is a command in ACAD that will tell me how close 2 objects pass.

I have an old pile foundation group for 4 tower legs and I wanted to see how close I could get the new pile group to the old group. I'll try to attach a dwg file with 3 options I was trying. The old group is in Cyan and the new group is Red.

I'm guessing I could use UCS and set it on one of the piles and measure to the closest old pile, but the screen gets so cluttered. Is there a way to only show a slice through the objects?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Minimum Pipe Cover

Mar 25, 2013

I am using a Pipe Network for all my drainage culverts on a large industrial site.  I have created all my pipes from "Create Pipes from Object", which were all feature lines.  While generating the pipes, I told it to use the object as my pipe invert.

I have set up my pipe rules (i.e. minimum/maximum slope and cover) to what I want.  Also when creating my pipes I assigned my design (top of sub grade) surface to them.  But I noticed that it's calculating my pipe cover from the middle of my pipes.

My pipes all have the right wall thickness, etc...set in the style.  Is there a setting I'm missing telling the pipe to calculate it from the top of the pipe...instead of the middle of the pipe?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Incremental Dimensions With Minimum Value?

Apr 10, 2012

I am trying to set up a dimension that starts at a minimum value and increases incrementally by 1/16" of an inch to satisfy another dimension.  I've attached a pdf showing the part and the two dimensions.  I need the overall thickness of the part to start at 1 1/4" as shown and as the width (Depth + 1 1/2") changes, the thickness will grow when the tongue of the part gets less than 5/8".  I'm guessing this is an area best suited to ILogic, but I'm not sure how to get started.
