Good afternoon. This is my first post here. Thanks in advance for the help.


I am a very new SW user.

I'm trying to create a belt mate around 5 pulleys.

I cannot attach to the outside pulleys. I'm thinking the distance apart may be to great.

SW says "The direction of a selected pulley is not parallel to the normal direction of belt plane".


What in the heck do they mean by that????

All the pulleys are in alignment or close enough.

I dont get this error attaching other pulleys in closer proximity. I can attach belts to 3,4, and 5, but not 1 or 2.
