Re: Cylinder piercing Cone constraint

That's it; you are the Master!!


I was way over complicating that... I was trying to do it the same way I would have in SolidWorks I guess... and that is not about to happen. 


In SolidWorks I would have slipped an additional part in there that was solely reference geometry. In this part have a sketch and attached UCS's to each point where I needed the pipes on the cone and drag and dropped them allowing them to automatically mate UCS/UCS. Each part with a sketch on it that can be used to do an assembly cut and do it on the assembly level. I seem to do this too often... Too many years of SolidWorks and not enough Inventor... 


Thank you for all of your help it is greatly appreciated!
