Inventor 2013 Animation Question

250 Views, 14 Replies

Need some advice on how to animate both propellers of a plane at the same time.  I can animate one but not both.  Any advice would be appreciated.

What environment?

Assembly?

Inventor Studio?

Dynamic Simulation?

 

Make a named parameter and the Drive Angle Constraint using the samed named parameter for both (if counter-rotating use -named parameter for one).

 

Attach your assembly here.

If you couldn't get it to work - how was I of any help?

Attach your assembly (or a simplified mock-up) here.

I'm sure there is an easy solution.

I don't know what that means?
To my email?

If so, did I respond back?

What does that mean?  (this is a multiple choice question)
Did you attach your assembly here?

Do you see your assembly attached here?

 

What environment are you attempting this animation? (this is a multiple choice question)

Assembly?

Inventor Studio?

Dynamic Simulation?

 

Can you attach your assembly here? (this is a Yes/No question)

 

I am sure there is a simple solution to your animation problem - but more information is needed in order to provide this solution.

You should always confirm after attaching files that they are in fact available.

 

Find the red End of Part marker in the browser.
(End of Folded on sheet metal parts EOF)
Drag the red EOP to the top of the browser hiding all features.

Save the file with the EOP in a rolled up state.

Right click on the file name and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Attach the resulting *.zip file here.
