Sub-assembly component constraints

27 Views, 1 Replies
12-09-2002 04:27 AM
I have several sub assemblies within a main assembly and several components in each sub-assembly. I have been exploring Inventors functionality within assemblies and have been playing around to better familiarize myself with demoting and promoting components. Now that I have several components “lost in space” I need help to get me out of this jam! I’m trying to figure out the best way to position or constrain components in one sub-assembly to components in another sub-assembly. Is there an easy way to do this? They do not have to be literally constrained, but they do need to be positioned properly. Thanks, Tom….

Generally components in each sub are constrained to each other and then just the subs need
to have the DOF's removed. If you are actually trying to constrain multiple components
across subs, you are going to have to turn on adaptivity to do it.
