I have a cone that I need to place a cylinder through. The cylinder will need to be 36" below the XZ plane and perpendicular to the side of the cone and 10° away from the Y axis. EASY right... I have an image of where I'm at. I have the 10° offset and that's it. But I have a sketch showing where I need the cylinder constrained too.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Attach your Inventor file(s) here.
(it is an easy problem to solve)
Here are the files. I should have attached them to start with... I will end up with 8 of these cylinders in the cone. I have attempted to create a separate part file for each that will contain a sketch and a UCS. Rotate this part to the angle that is needed and constrain the cylinder to the planes on the inserted UCS. Only thing is doing this way I will have to insert one of these for each part... which I will do if necessary.
Thanks for your help!
... I will end up with 8 of these cylinders in the cone.
I assume in a circular pattern?
I assume you will have some sort of Hole feature in the Cone part?
Yes there will be two layers of four evenly spaced and in circular pattern.
Lost me with this?
Do you realize that in a circular pattern your initial condition of 10° is meaningless extra work (you can rotate the entire assembly 10°)?
How far do you want the pipes penetrating into the cone and is the measure point from the outside surface or inside surface of the cone?
See if you can follow what I did in this assembly.
