How is this assignment coming along?

I would have expected daily communication on this, given the due date and how little you had completed.

Email notification didn't tell me about your last post.

 

I got it finished, mostly, yesterday. It's all modeled and put together as an assembly. I need to add the constraints that keep the parts from passing through one another, so it will act like a real mechanism. I haven't been able to figure out how to do that.

 

Is it possible for me to PM you with the file attached? I don't want someone appropriating it, given how many, many hours I've put into figuring out the correct proportions, angles, etc. of the mechanism. Hardest task I've ever done.

See how the parts pass through one another? How do I constrain them so they will behave like real, solid matter and not do that?

 

[Edit] For some reason the file I attached isn't working. I'll figure it out and post again.

Here it is.

 

[Edit] Well, no, it isn't. What do I need to do to the file so it will upload to here properly?

An assembly file without parts is useless.

Drag the red End of Part marker to the top of the feature tree of any large files.
Save the file with the EOP in a rolled up state.

Right click on the filename and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
Attach the resulting *.zip files here.

 

Read about Contact Sets.

Read about Dynamic Simulation.
