In this Autodesk Inventor tutorial, we will learn how to create an animation of chain links similar to what we see in the real world. For this, we will use a chain link (total 61 after duplicating it by using Assembly components pattern tool ) and two sprockets.
While creating the animation we will use as well learn various tools and functionalities of the software like basic sketching, creating user-defined work planes and points, utilization of adaptivity features, application of pattern feature along with detailed settings, Assembly Mates, Inventor Studio etc.

  1. I'm having a problem when I try to do this. The chain links that wrap around the sprocket at the curve don't curve and remain horizontal like the rest of the links which are flat. ie, the angle between all of the horizontal planes of every link is 0.

  2. Ya this is a bit difficult one. If some thing gives error start from the scratch it will be created in the end. Many people report this type of problem first and then succeed.

  3. Great! thank you for the download link!
