    Temporarily Lock Hinge Mate

    Eric Williams

      I have a 6-axis robotic arm model I'm trying to properly mate in assembly. I've created pegs/holes in the various component parts to use for hinge mates. There are times when I'd like to manipulate the assembly about one of these hinge mated "axes". Is there any way to quickly and temporarily "lock" the other "axes"? Solidworks seems to try very hard to intelligently only move the degrees of freedom it needs to, but often that does not produce the desired effect.
