Hello, I Use Inventor Fusion for Mac
When I tray to move a body or component,
1 Select body
2 select surface of the body I like to move
3 select move action
4 select the direction in where I would like to move the body.
5 select the surface of an other component where I would like to align with.
This is often working. But my problem is that it is also often not working. I can’t simply not select the surface of an other component where I would like to align with(5).
I have really no idea what I do wrong. Can somebody help me further?
Solved! Go to Solution.
what i find out is: when i select a body from the left menu, and then press on the move option, a random point will be taken to move the object from. In this case the alignment to other surfaces will work. When i make a selection (for example a center point) and start the move from that point, I can't select other surfaces anymore.
How can i align a center point of a body to another service? I have for example a Iphone connector and like to align this to the iphone. I trying this for weeks now, but dan't get it work
You ask a good question. There are two solutions: move bodies or assemble components
Assembly to center of a void, such as a connector hole.
If you need more help, just ask. Otherwise please mark this with Accept as Solution if I've answered your question fully.
Thanks for the remark. I'm aware of this posibilitys. But my problem is that the fucntion is not behaving as aspected.
I can use 'Move bodies/ component' and select a point in the body and move this body to another opjeckt. But the problem is that it somtimes can snap to another opject and somtimes not.
The snapping is working when the system defines his own point from where the body can be moved. When I select a point my self from where I would like to move the body, the snapping function is sundaly not working anymore.
If i create a new simple document with 2 bloks, it is working again.
So I do not understand when can it work and when not.
I'm now hours and hour furter to figer it out, but cant understand it.
I hope you can help me furter with this.
I too am finding it frustratingly difficult to get precise alignment of components and the answers being proposed on these forums are annoyingly unclear or unhelpful.
Another answer in found on this forum as a supposed solution to this questions was basically "google it" on the Autodesk University website. And no such lessons exist.
I'm sorry you are having a hard time with body and component alignment.
Did you try any of the methods I listed? If these workflows are unclear, I'll be happy to provide more information.
