Full detail chain generator for Inventor 2021. Like my last generator, the controls are all in one form. Has options for chain style (25 or 35), both sprocket tooth counts, and the total number of links in the chain. The center distance shown is the exact calculated center distance.
From my experience, the chains generated from this don’t cause a noticeable performance issue. The astute obverver will notice that some of the distances between links are slightly more than the pitch of the chain: this was necessary to make it possible to use and will not noticeably affect the size of the chain model vs the chain in real life.
If there is enough (read: any) demand for an Inventor 2020 copy of this file, I’ll make that at my earliest convenience.
