Starting a New Inventor Assembly File
Close any open Inventor files, and make sure the “iLogic 2010 Tutorials” project is active. This should have been installed along with Inventor iLogic.
Open a new Inventor assembly using the Standard.iam template.
Assembly Process Overview
Let’s examine the steps you take to create the assembly:
- Determine how the design will be used in the present application, and how it could be used in future applications.
- Write the rules that you desire to have in your assembly in ordinary language (i.e., Plain English).These plain language rules we serve as a guide as you create the actual rules in the design using iLogic Rule language.
After you have written the rules in plain language, place the components into the assembly and:
- Constrain the components and examine the remaining degrees of freedom.
- Add more constraints as necessary to fully constrain all parts.
