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?
