I've got a chain that runs between two sprockets. In between the sprockets is a slider that needs to be attached to the chain so that the rolling of the chain moves the slider back and forth. See the picture below:
Right now the chain just runs straight through the slider, it isn't connected at all. I can't find any way to tell Inventor that this slider is connected to the chain. Is this possible?
What version of Inventor do you have?
Do you have Inventor Professional with Dynamic Simulation?
Sorry, forgot to mention that. I have Inventor 2013 Product Design Suite. So no, I don't have dynamic simulation, so I guess it really isn't terribly necessary for me to do this, except that it would look better and give a more accurate estimate of the necessary chain length.
Also, in case I ever do want to do something like this when I can use dynamic simulation, it'd be nice to know.
