I am doing dynamic stimulation of machine to separate out material. When i loaded into simulation tab, the moving parts goes as grounded objects. I can't do analysis the free flow of material due to its constraints restrictions. I didn't constraints those components in assembly. Even, i set the flexible option in main assembly. I am not sure where i went wrong. How can i overcome this problem ? I am beginner to Inventor. Pls help me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I didn't constraints those components in assembly.
The Dynamic Simulation enviroment works the opposite of the Assembly Environment.
In th Assembly Environment you are removing degrees of freedom by adding assembly constraints.
In the Dynamic Simulation Environment you are adding degrees of freedom by adding joints.
Add Spatial joints to each (free) component to give each component 6 degrees of freedom.
I suspect then you need 3D constraints between the components and the components and other parts of the assembly. Check one at a time.
Post your assembly here if you can't figure it out.
Mr. Mather, Thanks for your prompt reply and concept about dynamic simulations environment. I have tried to add each(free) component in assembly to define the DOF. but i didn't see any change in constraits. I have attached the assembly along with this message. Pls help me to solve this. I want to analysis the free drop of toothpicks inside the holes while the eccentric motor rotates. Also, i have created weldment in assembly and i can see that Dynamic simulation options has been disabled. I have checked your link for tutorials. Quite interesting. Do you refer any tutorials for dynamic simulations ?
Many thanks. Jagan
IAM file is a data-base, without the related files, it's usless. Use the Pack-and-Go to get all the files. You might consider these books:
but i didn't see any change in constraits.
I should have said joints, not constraints.
Add Spatial and 3D Contact Joints.
Do this with on of the parts to test.
Search Amazon for book by Wasim Younis.
Dr. Mather, I have sent assembly files to ur email. Pls check it. Yes, i have 3D contacts nd defined gravity. Pls review the files.
Mr. Blair, Thanks for your suggestion. I used pack nd go option.
Dr. Mather, Thanks for your time. Since, i can't attached big size files here. So, i used your email id to send it. Sorry to disturb you. I shared new zip folder. pls check it. Many thanks. Jagan
I don't go to third party sites to download files.
Open the larger files.
Drag the red End of Part marker to the top of the browser hiding all features.
Save the file(s) with the EOP in this rolled up state.
Now zip and they will be much much smaller.
Dr. Mather, I followed your steps. Its works fine now. Thanks for your help.
Also, i was wondering that you won't trust google drive :-) Google is base tool for everyone.
Many thanks, Jagan
