I-sprocket?

Hi. Yesterday I was working on the inventor for our drive train, but we ran into a problem. One of the parts on the first cad library (i-sprocket.ipt) would not place right on the assembly. After I entered the parameters and tried to place it, Inventor gave me a long list of errors. Has anyone else had problems with this? Does anybody know how to fix it?

Thanks,
Daniel

What Inventor are you using? It’s been okay for me in 5.

I am using inventor 6.

Daniel,

I-factory parts will “blow-up” if you happen to choose parameters that don’t make sense like a bore diameter thats larger than the OD of the sprocket. What parameters are you using ?

Paramaters:
Chain pitch: 3/8 in
Number of teeth: 45ul
Bore diameter: 5/8 in
Hub diamater: 2.291 in
Key Width: 1/8 in
Hub: Compute
Keyway: Compute

Thanks,
Daniel

It doesn’t work for me in 7 either.

I found the issue with I-Sprocket … :ahh:

It’s posted in the First Cad Library. I’ve tested it under Inventor 5 & 6. If a few of you could please test this part with Inventor 7 and get back with me I would appreciate it.

Big thanks to Daniel Wong for his assistance in tracking down the problem. :slight_smile:

PS. I’ve also posted the Grounding Terminal

Thanks Ed. It’s working for me now.
