Display of Motion in ‘Pipe Wrench’ through Drive Constraint.

  1. Create a New ‘Standard (in).iam’ Assembly and save it with the name ‘Pipe Wrench-Drive Constraint’.
  2. Select Place component from the marking menu and place the ‘Base Frame’ in the Assembly.
  3. Re-orient the model in the design window by using View Cube.
  4. Set the current view as Home View by using the toggle next to View Cube.
  5. Place the ‘Supporting Bracket’ in the Assembly.
  6. Apply an Axis Mate between hole on the Base Frame and hole on the Supporting Bracket.
  7. Apply a Flush Mate Between XY Plane of Base Frame and XY Plane of Supporting Bracket.
  8. Activate Angle Constraint Command first select side face of Base Frame; then select side face of Supporting Bracket and at the last select top face of Supporting Bracket.
  9. Enter the value -4.76 degree in the Angle Input Box and click OK.
  10. Place the ‘Rivet-1’ in the Assembly.
  11. Fix the Rivet-1 in the hole of Supporting Bracket by the use of Insert Mate as displayed.
  12. Place the ‘Supporting Strip-1’ in the Assembly.
  13. Place the Supporting Strip -1 on the hole of Base Frame with the help of Insert Mate.
  14. Apply an Angle Constraint between top face of Supporting Strip -1 and top face of Base Frame.
  15. In the Solution Type, select Directed Angle.
  16. Place the ‘Rivet-2’ in the Assembly.
  17. Fix the Rivet-2 on the hole of Supporting Strip-1 with the help of Insert Mate.
  18. Place the ‘Supporting Strip-2’ in the Assembly.
  19. Place the Supporting Strip -2 on the hole of Base Frame with the help of Insert Mate.
  20. Apply an Angle Constraint between top face of Supporting Strip -2 and top face of Base Frame.
  21. In the Solution Type, select Directed Angle.
  22. Drag the Rivet-2 from the Browser Bar in the Assembly. This will place a copy of Rivet-2 in the Assembly.
  23. Fix the Rivet-2 on the hole of Supporting Strip-2 with the help of Insert Mate.
  24. Place the ‘Sliding Frame’ in the Assembly.
  25. Apply a Flush Mate between XY Plane of Base Frame and XY Plane of Sliding Frame.
  26. Set the browser from Assembly View to Modeling View using the toggle at the top of the browser.
  27. Apply a Mate Constraint between X Axis of Sliding Frame and Work Plane 7 of Supporting Bracket.
  28. Place the ‘Wheel’ in the Assembly.
  29. Apply a Mate Constraint between X Axis of Sliding Frame and Axis of Wheel.
  30. Apply a Mate Constraint between Work Plane 5 of Supporting Bracket and Work Plane 1 of Wheel.
  31. Activate the Motion constraint, in the Type area select Rotation-Translation, and afterwards select the front face of Wheel then Vertical edge of Sliding Frame.
  32. Enter the value 0.205 inch in the Distance Input box and click OK.
  33. Activate the Angle Constraint, First select YZ Plane of Wheel, Second select XY Plane of Assembly and at last select top face of Supporting Bracket, and click OK.
