    Trouble make a simple hinge mate for 3D print

    Fernando Rossi

      Hey guys, i'm new to solidworks and I'm struggling to make a simple mate.

       

      There are 2 parts on a assembly

      I want to rotate the "top cover' 90 degrees upwards to easily 3d print.

      I tried to mate them as a hinge, and I did a "split line" to take the coincident faces.

      It just doesn't work.

       

      If i try to make the them concentrical, it works. As a hinge, not working. Anyone knows why?
