When adding a coincident mate reference to conical face of a flat head screw, the screw comes into the assembly (hole) in the same orientation regardless of the alignment chosen in the mate reference. i.e. my screws always come in backwards. Help.
Are you adding any additional mates? Maybe you should start with something like a concentric mate to control the orientation... or a parallel mate between the flat head and the material surface.
Kevin McGillivray, If you hit the Tab key when you have dragged the screw to its c'sunk hole it will toggle the orientation. This happened a few years ago and they still haven't fixed it, but the Tab toggle becomes second nature after you've done it a few times.
Dennis, I see that tabbing does toggle the orientation of the screw, but when I then select the c'sunk hole it flips backwards. The mate reference overrides it's floating position. Is there a setting somewhere...?
