    Drag Chain model problems

    John Wayman

      I am trying to model a drag chain that moves with the assembly it is mated to using the chain mate.

      I followed the instructions in the Youtube video SOLIDWORKS 2015 - Chain Component Pattern - YouTube

      I can get the chain to work if I select the Distance Method for Pitch, but, if I select either Distance Linkage or Connected Linkage, all the instances of the chain links pile on top of each other.

      What am I doing wrong?

      Assembly model is attached.
