      Hello SOLIDWORKS power-users!

       

      Let's have a bit of fun this afternoon. I challenge you to find a solution to the old pin-free-to-move-in-a-slot mating problem.

       

      Please watch this video for a full description of the problem:

      Will provide the solution at the end of the day, unless... you do that first.
