I'm doing some jobs with design. I just don't know how it could be like this. For example:
I have an assembly named 1.iam. which contains a gearbox (2 pairs of spur gears). I made all the constrains in this assy, and a can switch to Dynamic Simulation Env. to perform the motions. The shafts, bearings and gears was created by using Design Accelerator in the Design tab.
I also have another one named 2.iam, which is a chains drive. I contrains all the chains link and made them a chain drive like what we see in real life, not just 2 spocket and an transparent belt (inventor made this to save memory and better performance). I added 45 joints in this simulation.
The problem occurs when I place 1.iam into 2.iam. 42 of 45 joints was suppressed. I receive a warning: 22 dof was over-constrained... Turn to Dynamic simulation, press Play the simulation but there no moves anymore. The gearbox still have have shaft, bearings, gears but when I right-click on them, I see no " Edit with Design Accelerator" . After deleting the 1.iam (gearbox) I've just placed. The problem does not dissapear. I know that I made something wrong but I don't know what it is? Is there some way better? Can anyone help me.
Very appreciate to any help.
