TechTusday – Autodesk Inventor Constraint Limits


Inventor Constraint limits are something that not every Inventor user is aware of, but something that is very useful when working with assemblies.

In short, constraint limits allow a part to be constrained to another part but also allow it to move, at the same time restricting the assembly’s movement to a certain point. This is where most of the Autodesk Inventor users would use the “Contact Solver” which is a resource-heavy function, whereas a constraint limit is just a parameter and is much easier on CPU and RAM usage.

Constraint limits can be found in the “Place Constraint” dialog box. Expand the window by clicking the two arrows and you will be presented with a couple of options to limit the constraint.
