Bolted Connection - Failing to stay constrained

466 Views, 8 Replies

I've been having an issue with my bolted connection - when I check to follow pattern or if I pick multiple holes the bolted connection doesn't stay locked down by constraints - it still wants to rotate about the first picked hole axis. When I have used bolted connection in the past it would always remain completely constrained. Would anyone happen to know why this is? Thanks

Hello

unfortunatelly , as far as I know it is as designed. Workaround for that is
to add a new own constrain on a one bold in the pattern to constrain ti with
a part. Then it works well. And also you have to check if something changes
with pattern that BC is on right possition.

regards

I find this hard to believe - it has worked in the past where the bolted connection is locked down - I have been noticing this issue for the past 3 weeks - thought it was maybe something with old projects i'm working in?

well - after trying a new project and assembly the bolted connection still rotates about the selected hole axis. I'm thinking it might be the way Inventor 2010 does the bolted connection - I'll have to try it again in Inventor 2009 and see if the bolted connection stays constrained.

I too am having this issue, and I am unable to add an additional constraint without getting the "overconstrained" prompt. I'll spare the long stories but it seems the easiest thing for me to do is recreate this bolted connection each time after altering the model. Is there any news or information about why this would do this or what I could do differently?

Hi,

 

I've got the same problem with Inventor 2013 SP2. When using the "Follow pattern" all the bolts created using the same "Bolted Connection" can rotate around the axis of the first bolt.

I am having this problem as well with 2015 Professional. We upgraded from 2012 and it worked just fine there. I have even noticed if I open legacy assemblies that have not been migrated that the constraints are broken on those as well. I really hate to think the solution is to just start adding extra constraints that we previously have not needed.
