I am currently in the process of making a six bar in autodesk inventor and was wondering how to make a six-bar move the way it does in real life? I have been trying do this for a while but can’t seem to figure this out.
I was able to make a single six bar operate properly just through clicking and dragging the very tip(with proper constraints), however if you constrained 2 six bars together, you need to carefully place your tangents. If it isn’t mirrored on the other side, you cant drag it.
As for the actual constraints, i used 2 tangent constraints on a pillow block and square hole. One tangent on one of the horizontal edges and one tangent on one of the vertical edges.
If you’re still having issues, make sure your moving pieces aren’t grounded to the assembly.
Thanks for the help ive finanlly got it working.
