HI, I am attempting to perform a difficult mate and i cannot figure it out yet. I have a flat rectangular surface (gasket) that i would like mated tangent to a slightly curved surface (1400mm radius glass). I understand that in real life the gasket will compress in some areas and not others to seal the uneven surfaces, but how do I mate this type of connection in Inventor?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You will need to model the part in it's installed shape.
Sounds like this might be as easy as Derived Component and Bend Part.
Another option might be to model as Sheet Metal (even if that isn't the material) and use the folded model in the assembly and the flat pattern in the part drawing.
