I have an assembly with a curved line made in a sketch, and a part with a point in the bottom.
I want to constrain the point to the curved line, but the regular Constrain options wont let me do so.
Is there any work-around or a tip for this?
The attached pic might make it easier for you to see what I want.
I am making an animation with Inventor Studio, so I need this constrain, so I later on in studio can manipulate it and insert the first part into the other.
Can you place a Work Point on the line at the point required. If so, then use the Work-Point to constain to. Or extrude the line as a surface and costrain to it. If you use the constraint distance to match the radius it will match.
I couldn't figure out how to extrude the line as a surface, but I did a workaround and created the curved line as a part instead. The surface of this part was able to create the constrain, as you described. Worked perfectly!
Now I just have to make the part invisible, and I am good to go.
Thank you for you help.
