Q - question

Roller chain model in Inventor.

A - answer If you need to model a complete 3D roller chain (assembly) in Inventor, you can use a simple free utility RollerChain (exe). Just run Inventor and the RollerChain.exe program.

The application then asks for parameters (size of the sprockets, number of chain links, etc.) and automatically generates a complete 3D model of a roller chain.
