If you are an Autodesk® Inventor® user, you might find SMA (Slot Mid Axis) quite useful. This tool can help you create Center Axes for Slots quickly and efficiently, saving you a lot of time and effort.
Autodesk® Inventor® doesn’t have a direct way to create Middle Axes for Slots, which can make it challenging to center a hole from one plate to the middle of a slot on another plate.
Users often add constraints based on the slots’ width and length, which can be time-consuming and require updates if the parameters change later.
General Usage Instructions
With SMA (Slot Mid Axis), you can create a Middle Work Axis for Slots in just one click.
The created Axis will remain in the middle of the slot, and changing slot parameters won’t affect the created Axis.
It will always point to the middle of the slot, making it a convenient solution for centering holes from one plate to the middle of a slot on another plate in Autodesk® Inventor®.
