Hi,

 

I'm just on the way to explore my knowledge on Solidworks Clearance Verification and I have came across a simple problem.

 

I have made a simple assembly with 4 parts and I want to check the clearance between 2 parts of it. I selected that particular 2 components and I clicked on Clearance Verification and I have given the clearance value as 0.5 mm. After clicking on Calculate, solidworks shows the clearance between these 2 parts only in one direction. why is that so?

 

I want to check the clearance between these 2 parts in 2 directions say for example X & Y but solidworks gives me the clearance in only one direction.why?

 

And also,when I choose 2 parts to check the clearance between, how solidworks identifies between which 2 faces(which axis) I'm expecting the clearance? 

 

Has anyone thought of this?

 

Pls check the attached picture for more clarity.
