    Fixing a motor-driven part on its rotational axis

    John Munroe

      Hi all

       

      I'm trying to run a motion simulation on a basic assembly with 4 parts:

      I'm simply trying to turn the red part with a motor such that it will stick to its axis of rotation. That is, the red part will rotate around its axis and the yellow part should simply rotate inside the ring. The result I'm getting is that the whole assembly falls apart, especially when the yellow hits the green. I already have set up a parallel mate between the red and the ring, but the parts still fly off and disperse. Does anyone know how to hold the red still on its axis of rotation?

       

      Any help will be appreciated.

       

      Thanks
