I have but something just to model and i need it to move via the hydraulic cylinder. This is still a work in progress. I attached a picture and my file
I opened your assembly. If you make the cylinder sub-assembly flexible as I said in my post yesterday then you can grab the Feed Roll Frame up near the Roll and move it up and down. The Hydraulic Support Bracket will remain stationary and the Hydraulic Stroke will move in and out of the Hydraulic Base. Is that not what you want?
I'm about to go home so I can't look at your model, but if you haven't already done so you need to RMB on the cylinder sub-assembly in the tree and choose the Component Properties icon. Then choose Solve as Flexible at the lower right of the dialog box.
You need to post your part files as well, not just the sldasm.
Use Pack and Go to gather them all up in a zip file. Then post the zip file with your complete assembly.
Anna I edited the original post to include the pack and go zip file
Can anyone else help me on this?
Glen I was trying it in another assembly and it wasnt working. I then set the whole assembly pictured (a sub assembly now) to flexible and it worked. Thanks! One more thing. How do i constrain the angle now. I figured i should use the angle mate, but not sure which things to mate. Here is a picture of what im talking about.
I think the main problem there is that you have too many components that are still free to move. If you will apply mates to secure the components that will be stationary it should work better.
I think I have everyting stationary mated except the hydraulic cylinder, however I am not sure how i should mate this. Any suggestions?
It's hard to say without having the model and knowing how it's supposed to work. I'm at home today and don't have SW here, but if you will do a Pack and Go of your assembly and post it maybe someone else can help. You might even want to start a new thread with this question. Since your original question was marked as answered some people who could help with this one may not open the discussion again and see the new question.
