Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Chain assembly, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- If you've added the additional cam shaft gears…from the previous video,…your design should now look similar to mine.…I have saved a version though to this stage…in the lesson file as 03 05 Top Level Assembly Finish,…if you prefer to use that as a starting point.…Now I've already prepared a chain subassembly…for use in our design.…Now go ahead and insert components in the…top level assembly and lets find this chain assembly…and place a single instance into the graphics view.…
In this subassembly, I have added a simple…non-realistic chain which serves only the purpose…for graphical representation.…However, if you study the assembly file,…you will see how I have achieved this result…and can use a similar methodology if you need…to create a chain of your own.…The gears are simply derivitives from our sprocket model…covered in previous videos.…Now let's go ahead and add a concentric mate…between the small gear and the flywheel shaft.…
We'll make these two faces coincident to align…the gear with the flywheel.…Then for representation purposes only,…
