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:
