Hello i am working on crankshaft with piston but after assembly i want to rotate crankshaft and there are no proper movement of piston so how to solve this problem
Without any model or screen shot to look at I will have to just shoot from the hip.
What I would so is create an axis between the top and right planes of the assembly. then I would constrain the center of the crank to the front plane and the center axis of a stationary journal of the crank to the created axis. now the crank is locked in position and can rotate. Next constrain the piston rod to be concentric to it's journal and centered between the journal ends. Finally create a plane off the created axis at what ever angle the piston should be traveling and constrain the piston to travel on that plane.
Viola! your homework is finished, Do I get a grade?

The only difference that I want to point out is- your instructions work well for a single cylinder, 6 cylinder X 6 - 12 cylinder X 12 etc
Pls suggest me how to solve this problem
Hello Can you suggest me how to solve this issue
Can you share the model? I am not sure what your issue is.
pls check i'll do it flexible of sub assembly but there are same issue.
I am using this flexible command and also using lock rotation on mate two components
Can you suggest me how to solve this issue...????
Attach your assembly here - I am not very good at diagnosing problems from pretty pictures - that is why I use SolidWorks.
It's the weekend people - hehehe take your chill pill
Now I am wondering what you said.
Wasn't me man - wasn't me - no idea what was said, just thought it was kinda funny - it's Friday
I am making one crankshaft and piston and now i am doing assembly and want to rotate crankshaft with 4 piston but when i rotate the crankshaft piston will be not hold at our position so i want to know that how to fix all piston into crankshaft then we have to move easily,
Can you attach your assembly here?
My guess is that as a 4 cylinder system your pistons are on 2 different planes. You will need an axis for each plane that the pistons will be moving in.
