I have a question. in assembly when I connect some parts together, I found that for the same mate it sometimes put arrow beside the mate and sometimes not as shown in the attached photo. I don't know what is the difference. Many thanks
search for "view mates window" in the help file
It means that the part mate leads to ground (origin)
Many thanks for your answer. Do you mean by ground (origin) the fixed part in my assembly? and Does that mean that the nmates don't have this icon couldn't move the force to the ground?
Yes, the "ground" is your initial fixed part in the assembly.
Not sure on the second part of your question. sorry
Mohammed never seen that icon in my mates. Can you attach one sample assembly with few parts which shows these variations to check.
I think this link will answer your question.
Scott thanks for the link
