Q - question

Creating an interference solid from conflicting Inventor parts.

A - answer The "Analyze Interference" function in Inventor assemlies (the ribbon Inspect tab> Interference panel > Analyze Interference) creates only a visual temporary object and display its volume. You cannot analyze and work with this collision object.

With the VBA macro "CreateInterference" you can check colliding (interferencing) parts in the whole assembly at once and add the resulting interference body as a new part (solid) to the current assembly. You can then analyze it in detail and then fix the unwanted interferences.

You can download the free macro CreateInterference.ivb from www.cadstudio.cz/download. Load it in the VBA Editor and run it using Alt+F8.

See the details of this procedure (Czech version) in the CAD Video section - video #68
