• How can I enable/disable an inner assembly's mates?

    For a Motion Study I want to disable some mates from an assembly that's included in my main assembly in order to be able to animate some of the parts therein (sort of an exploded state).   But I don't seem to be...

  • In motion study animation bolt rotation should not be concentric, it rotate as ovel. What should be done to correct it.

    I have done exploded view than in animation bolt should not be rotate concentric, it shuld be rotate as a ovel. What should I do.
