Splitting a Part in an assembly animation

Recommended Posts

guitar-bimbo

Is there a way to split a single part in an assembly in order to show two separate halves during an animation.

 

Scenario:

 

My company wants to split a 40 ft shipping container in half to scab in a 4' section to make a 12' wide container. I have designed a jig on tracks to show how the container can be split and half of the container to be rolled away to allow for the "scab" to be built in the middle. IS there a way to animate this in Inventor.. The container is in the assembly model as a single part.

Sounds like it would be easy!

Much easier said than done ... unless I am missing something obvious ...

Do you want to do this with Drive Constraint

or

Do you want to do this in Inventor Studio

or

Do you want to do this in Dynamic Simulation

or

Do you want to do this in Dynamic Simulation and publish to Inventor Studio?

 

or (I guess)

Do you want to do this in the Presentation (*.ipn) environment?

 

How much experience with each of above options do you have?

I have been using Inventor about 3 months (student) I believe I have figured out how to do what I want ...
