How to make two parts move at the same time while keeping their limited distance mate

I am new to solidworks and I have a question that's been bugging me.

I have attached a simple assembly, with 3 parts, as shown in the picture.



I have setup the mates so part 2 can only move inside part 1, and part 3 can only move inside part 2.

Now when I drag part 2, part 3 which is on top of part 2 would stay still until the wall of part 2 hits part 3, then part 3 will start moving.

My goal is when I move part 2, part 3 would move with part 2 even without part 2's wall hitting part 3 (like there is friction between 2 and 3, so part 2 and 3 keep then relative position), and also when I move part 3, part 2 would move when part 3 hit part 2's wall.


Is this possible to do in Solidworks

Thanks a lot for any help.
