As you can see in the attachment (which is a small test version of my full project) do I have a problem..
The wheels on the side need to roll inside the guide rail. I can let them roll in each part separately but not in the entire rail.
I already tried with transitional constrains but then inventor says that there are some problems.
My project needs to become a sectional gate so there's going te be lots more than just 2 wheels in it...
Hope someone can explane me how to constrain this movement
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try creating a continuous surface (as a seperate part) on the inside of the guide rails.
Constrain the wheels to this surface instead of the rails.
Turn the visibilty of the surface off as needed.
Don't double post. It's bad karma..
Well, I guss you want to get a animation, I prefer to use Inventor Dynamic Simulation to get such kind movement.
You can leverage the joint (sliding:Curve & Point), attached please fiind the iam file , I made some changes on your dataset, simpliified the assembly and modified the guiderail part, since it requires a close loop.

Also modified attached part to create a sketch point.
