Adding Assembly Constraints

Assembly constraints restrict the movement of components relative to each other. Apply all constraints necessary to fully constrain each part so as to leave no degrees of freedom.

Mate the Port A Union Cap to the Block

Creating an Inventor Mate Assembly Constraints

Create a Mate Constraint, between:

  • The axis running through the center of Port A of the manifold block.
  • The axis through the center hole of port_a_union.

If, after creating the constraint, the union cap is hidden within the block, click and drag the union cap away from the block. You can click and drag any part within an assembly and it moves if it is under-constrained.

 

The mate Assembly Constraints

 

 

 

Your assembly should now look like the image to the left, with the flat surface of the port facing the block…

 

 

 

Creating an Inventor Axial Assembly ConstraintsCreate another Mate Constraint, between:

 

  • The axis running through the center of Port A top
    left screw hole on the manifold block.
  • The axis along the center of the top left screw hole
    of port_a_union.
