Rotating part around another part (path mate?)

Hi guys,


I have come up an issue I can't work around. I have an assembly with a BASE and PART. I want the PART to follow the shape of the base. However I have tried to add a motor to the simulation and it spins the PART away from the course of the BASE. Path mate seems to only work a point/vertex of the PART.


The simulation will be like a snake along a path. This animation will mean the part will be changing shape and I dont if solidworks can handle these types of animations?


Can anyone help?
