Chain, Sprockets and Drum - Destiny

Postby Destiny » Mon Dec 28, 2015 10:49 am

Hi..

There was nothing easy about this one.. I tried very had to add the Drum to the Simulation.. The pins on the Chain entered the Slot ok, went up and across ok, but as soon as it hit the down position, it made the chain links bunch up.. So I thought I could animate the Drum after the Simulation but not so easy as it might sound.. This entire project might be a good one for Simlab to improve the Simulation process..

NB... I edited the colour..

You can see here, as soon as I add the Drum, the chain bunches up... The Simulation/Animation from the guys example is awesome so I would have thought it would work using Simlab.. https://grabcad.com/library/barrel-cam-mechanism-bt7-1

Hi.. Sorry I did not see your request.. A PM would have been better...

I just tried to open that Sim file. Sim 6 says the trial has run out which is strange.. So now none of the Simulation points are there.. I will have to do it again when I have time.. Sorry about that..

I guess there is no real reason to keep V6 on my Mac.. It was working fine.. I only keep old versions in case I need to open an old file... But I guess it does not work like that.. :?
