Have you ever wanted to stretch a part to fit into a range of sizes. This example shows how to create a template part that will “stretch” to fit into different assembled sizes.

Adaptive Parts with Driven Constraints

One of the Inventor “Tricks of the Trade” that I used to show customers is the ability to drive adaptivity with a driven assembly constraint. This allows a part to stretch to the appropriate size though a given range of motion in an assembly. This allowed us to animate flexible parts that would otherwise always be shown as a static size. Part parameters can be animated in Inventor Studio now, but driving adaptivity can be easier to get a quick point across. Take a look at this video for an example:

Adapt to your situations…with adaptivite models

I was presenting a web cast yesterday when I was asked a question. “I made gear that has no drive hole, and I have a shaft with a special shape to it. How do I get the shaft shape cut into the gear?”

Well that is probably a common thing to happen in designs I thought. So the answer I gave him was to put them into the assembly and then edit the gear in the assembly to create an adaptive link to the shaft.

Thanks to Cecil from Sealy Co. for letting me use his parts to solve his problem.

Enjoy,
