Can anyone help me on an airbag for a trailer suspension i want it to act like its extending and compressing on angle...i need help
production is halted..i need help..BUMP
Production really halted on completing a SW model or drawing? You guys must be new.
It would help to have some more explanation of your problem, cause it's pretty fuzzy what you want.
To me it sounds like you want to tip a trailer sideways, or maybe the tongue up and down, using airbag suspension. Haven't seen a trailer with airbag suspsension.
Usually the bellow supplier has the maximum and minimum dimensions on their customer drawings. Draw you bellow at those maximum sizes and maybe use configurations to show the minimum size as well. You might need a third configuration to show the bellow at riding hight (also use maximum diameter there).
Can you upload the parts so we can see what your talking about more clearly?
here's a trailer that has airbags...lol the production halted part was a joke since it was posted 2 years ago. But maybe this would help. I just want an air bag that would deflate on an angle..(worst bag drawing ever).. Thanks guys in advance.
I think this is the way to go, see attached assembly. It can be a lot better when adding guide lines and maybe a fixed lenght for the guide line.
That's what I get for not reading everything I guess.
Airbags seem like a complex way to get something on a trailer, you must be hauling something special.
Looks like you're getting some good help.
Try something like this:
It is important that you mate the arc length, not the height. (dimension by clicking the two endpoints, followed by the arc itself)
When you drag the upper marked point up and down, you should see the bellow movement. Revolve this sketch around the vertical line.
put the part in the assembly, mate the bottom to the arm. Edit the sketch, and drag and drop the marked sketchpoint to the frame.
You can now rebuild the part when you have moved the arm, or you can make animations.
For a double bellow:
