Attach your assembly here.

 

Both of those videos are fairly easy to do (in Inventor).

But I don't have time to model the parts for you.

Did this quick example while waiting for your assembly (attach your SWx assembly here if you don't know how to use Inventor - I can use SWx too).

I am able to do the same thing using "Bolted connection component generator". but can you do the same thing using any other part other than fasteners? Can you distribute a part that I created earlier? 

 

I can't attach pieces here due to companiy's policy. But I will attach something similar soon.

I didn't use the Bolted Connection generator.  (that topic was already covered earlier in this thread)  The component patttern would work with virtually any component.

While I was waiting for you to attach a dummy assembly that exhibits all the behavior of what you want to see in your proprietary assembly - so I created one from scratch myself.  I did not use any of the Design Accelerators (like Frame Generator) to show that it can be done with any component. 

 

Leg Pattern.png

 

I have two legs in this assembly - note Instance #2 of the component Leg is highlited.

I did a Component Pattern of each leg to follow the rails.

This is my project in which I want to distrubute the rod into each hole by one command. As you can see the distances between holes are not the same. Please tell me if this is possbile in inventor. I know this is very easy in solidworks. Please do not recommend me rectangular and circular pattern. i have already tried.

Can you do a video of first one? Not using screw. We really need to know how you do it.

You left out a critical step in your video.

For some reason yours still worked, but I didn't see you set the Direction 1 Orientation.

 

Also, I often set the seed for my pattern as a different color so that I don't have to go back and identify it.

Thanks JD.

Thats correct. Guys this what I missed out. This would have controlled the orientation od the screw.
