An assembly file (*.iam) is only a list of hyperlinks to the part files (*.ipt) and a record of assembly constraints (and a bit more).

You must include the part files.

I'm sorry, but I don't follow :smileyindifferent: Are you saying that I should include the part files in an assembly together with plate and then combine it with the larger assembly? I tryed that but I found it difficult to get X grounded as I was moving the plate along the "treadmill". I need X  to be "out of the picture" during the bend/flush process and then at last, get it mated with the plate to "complete" the product.

Thanks

You posted a *.iam file.

Look at the file size?  See anything unexpected?

 

An assembly file (*.iam) is nothing more than a record of hyperlinks to where the parts (*.ipt files) are located.

There is no geometry in an assembly - only tells Inventor where to find the parts (on your hard drive).

 

In order for an *.iam file to rebuild the assembly from the instructions in the *.iam  the *.iam must have access to the part (*.ipt) files.  You did not attach those files here.

 

You must attach the *.ipt part files here.

Missing OJOJ.ipt and xxx.ipt doesn't have dimensions and almost horizontal line - is that intended?

Ah, maybe thats the problem. I copied the side of the bend plate (the sketch) to ensure that it would fit perfectly...Namnlös.png
