Turn the crank & screw rod at the same as the drive constraint

Hello Everyone

I have now completed my model of a Scissor Car Jack.

I am using these set limits within a drive constraint so

to show the Jack opening & closing.

Although it can now open & close with ease,

 

Could any one suggest how I can make the crank turn with the screw rod at the same time as the scissor car jack opens & closes.

 

Kind regards

A CAD Student.

 

 

 

Hi 20112679, 

 

I think you've gone about as far as you can with Drive Constraints. To animate multiple constraints at once you'll probably want to move to the Studio environment. You could also use the Dynamic Simulation tools, but that might be getting deeper than what you're after.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis
