Hi, I am new to Solidworks and a student in college.
I have this cooler that has a cupholder that flips open and then fits back into the cooler top.
It works by two pegs on either side of the cup holder, following a groove inside the cooler top.
I cannot figure out how to mate the cup pegs to follow the path I've extruded for them.
Pathmate will not recognize the sketch I've drawn.
I read on some forums that the sketch needs to be converted to a fit spline, but I'm don't know how to do that and can't find a video that explains it well enough for me.
Any help would be great. Thanks
I've also attached the assembly file.
Here is the cooler with cup closed.
Cup Flipped Open
Here is the path I'm trying to get the peg to follow
Notice the peg on the cup portion and the groove cut-out on the cooler top.
add a sketch point to the end of your pin and use that for pate mate
make sure to select open loop then sketch from selection manager
sketch should go green
