This will work if you rebuild your model with the extrusions normal to the direction of adaptability. With this method you can change Mate1 in my example but you cannot drive it. Sorry I can only upload IV2012 data.
Driving it is what I need for this assembly. I appreciate the method you have used though.
I have tried a few other methods but none of them would allow me to drive the adaptive part. Does anyone know if this is possible inside of Inventor?
Apologies, I've just re-read you post and you have done as I suggested.
Can't explain why it would work in one assembly but not in another,all things being equal.
So ignore the following.
You have done all the work.
One edit is needed to make it drive.
1. Delete origin to curve centre constraint.
2. Constrain end point of cable to origin.
3. Drive flush constraint between block parts, with adaptivity ticked on.
Thank you so much!
That was the reason why it didn't work in the sliding doors, I used a "Mate" instead of a "Flush" constraint! I can't believe that a flush will work where a mate doesn't, it's quite confusing!
But that's great, thank you so much.
And everyone else who contributed, all the other posts helped me too!
Thanks everyone! Hopefully this will be a good example for people to read through in the future.
