I have this circular pattern for a sub-assembly of an umbrella. I would LOVE if the patterned assemblies moved together with the seed...........why don't they - how to make them do that?
- Thanks, Niels
Flexible subassemblies are usually not going to do what you want them to do or what you think they should do, because they are flaky and counterintuitive. They are bad news in mechanisms.
Break up you flexible subassembly and put the whole thing together at the top assembly. Then you mechanism will behave.
This is best practice anyway, unless you really intend to have a subassembly drawing for the pin assembly. I'm not seeing a big advantage to that, unless production is asking for it.
That is strange, it seems like the patterns should copy the seed. I see that it indicates the seed needs to be rebuilt. If you ctrl+q does it solve anything?
I don't use flexible sub-assemblies often, but I have used them a couple of times with linear patterns in assemblies that were quite a bit more complex than your umbrella. They worked fine. While I've never used them with a circular pattern I don't see why it wouldn't also work.
