 Alignment and assembly challenge
31-08-2011 08:44 . pm | View his/her posts only
Hi All,
I am modelling a carriage system that runs on a tubular track so it can ultimately do a combination of horizontal and vertical curvature.
The problem is trying to set up the assembly to;
a) Align rollers to the tube
b) align so that the rollers follow the curvature of the track

I am attaching a picture of part of the assembly.

Also a file of the tube and the rollers. I hope hte file is complete enough for you to use. All the parts are in it.
This is a very simplified version to figure out how to do this.

Any help appreciated including VX(oops) ZW3D staffers!

Cheers

Hi Tony,
the zip files seem problematic. They show as loaded when I edit but not once posted?

Attaching full sized file ~8Mb as well.

Cheers
