Ball Constraint ,Slide Constraint , Cylindrical Constraint in Revit !

As I said before I want to show you how you can crate this type of constraint in Revit Like Inventor Professional.

Let Start ,

For this assembly we need six part as you can see in the below picture:

1.Rotter Part

2. T Shape Slider Part

3. Ball Pin

5. Piston Part

Ball 3

6. Cylinder Part

Ball 5

Now we can start our assembly. you need to create new Family and call that Assembly in my opinion Face Base family is prefect . from the Insert Ribbon run the Load Family Command and load all of the part into the assembly family.

Ball 7

  1. place the Rotter family with this option and pay attention to the Reference Line in the mark 2 and 3

Like the below picture you can go to the front view and create new Reference Plan and make align for this reference plan, then you can call that for example a.

Ball 8

Like the below picture create a reference line make align from the start point ( 3) between to reference plan (4 , 5 ) and create an angular dimension between reference line ( 1 ) and reference plan ( 2) create a parameter from this dimension and call that for example Rotor angle

Ball 12

Set the work plan of reference line like to below pictures

Ball 13

 

Ball 14

Place the T Slider shape component on like the below picture and set the correct position for this part.

Ball 15

Go to 3d View and change the Rotor Angle parameter for test.

Ball 16

Change the work plane to the another work plan of reference line then you draw before and go to the front view.

Ball 17

Ball 18

Ball 19

Run the reference line Command and start to create from the intersection below pictures.

Ball 20

Ball 21

Create three reference line like the below picture.

Ball 22

add some parameter for this reference line , the length for reference line ( 3 ) is fixed and two other parameter are instance.

Ball 23

Change the work plan like the below pictures.

Ball 24

Ball 25

Create new reference line ( 1 ) and add fixed dimension for this reference line , then you need to create dimension depend to the Pipe slider part ( 2 )

Ball 26

change the reference plan like the below pictures.

Ball 27

Ball 28

place the Ball pin part and change the position and orientation like the below picture.

Ball 29

create new reference line  ( 1 ) and then add angular dimension ( 3 ) and make align between the new reference line and the end of reference line ( Opening Length A )

Ball 30

Set the work plan like the below pictures.

Ball 31

Ball 32

Place the pipe slider part and change the position and orientation like the below picture.

Ball 33

Set the work plan like the below pictures.

Ball 34

Ball 35

Place the Piston part and change the position and orientation like the below picture.

Ball 36

Create new Reference Line Like the below picture and set the Work plan.

Ball 37

Ball 38

Now you can place the Cylinder part and change the position and orientation for this part like the below picture.

Ball 39

Go to 3d View and change the parameter for test .

Ball 40

Download Family : http://s6.picofile.com/file/8259515050/T_Shape_Slider.zip.html

 

Now you have Ball constraint in Ball pin Part and housing of Rotor Part , Slide Constraint between Ball pin Part and Pipe Slider Part and two concentric Constraint for Piston and Cylinder Part.

Good Luck.
