I am trying to rotate the two parts that are highlighted, but they will not move. In the two sub assemblies that this part is also in, it moves. I have it set to lightweight. I am not sure what im missing.
Are "assembly" and "Assembly Point down" set to "Flexible"?
Also, there are some errors in your model. If these are mate errors, then they may be causing your problem.
Yes they are both set to flexible. I inherited part of this project and there were errors in the previous persons work.I fixed what I could and from what i can tell the only error is an import error. the probes( things that are pointing down) are imported and are not rebuilt correctly i think. It has not caused any issues for anything else i have done so i decided not to fool with it.
I would start by ensuring the part is able to move in the subassemblies individually by opening them to check this, I also know that multiple flexible sub assemblies can be problematic at times.
I have opened up all the sub assiemblies that this part is in, and they all work up untill I get to this sub assembly.
Try this, start a new empty assembly, insert the "Assembly Point Down" assembly and see if you can do what you want that way...just a sanity check
so with "assembly" open in its own window, the parts do not move? then they are fully defined in that assembly and you will need to remove mates to free them up.
Brian it works in "assembly point down"
Jeremy it DOES work in "assembly"
then I would try dissolving "assembly" to get rid of the redundant layer in the structure.
Can you elaborate on this? I dont see how 'assembly" is redundant
"Assembly point down" has only 1 component, "assembly"
"Assembly point down" has 4 components assembly, top chan. bar and base plate x2
so it does - sorry, that had scrolled off of the bottom of my screen...
yes, there appears to be no reason for "assembly" inside of "assembly point down" - I would dissolve it.
I sent you a private message through the forums here. Please take a look when you have a chance.
