I create a engine assembly and used "Drive Constrain" to rotate the crank shaft. The animation shows the crank shaft turns continuously in one direction. However, when I animate the constrain in Inventor Studio, the crank shaft turned in two different directions (see the vide file attached).

 

May I know why the crank shaft turns different direction?

 

Thanks  

Make sure the planes used for the angle constraint share the same axis.

I used the assembly origin YZ and the DLM-006 YZ planes for the angle constraint and it worked fine in Studio.

Which of the 3 Angle Constraint types did you use?
Can you use Dynamic Simulation and Publish to Studio instead?

Not matter I used Directed Angle or Undirected Angle, it is still the same. I created a animation by using "Drive Constrain"  and the crank shaft shows only one direction. Please see the file attahced.

As the file is too big, so I zipped into 3 files. This is the 1st zip file.

This is the last one. Please unzip the 3 zipped files into one folder.
