Hi, i want to assemble 2 parts, but dunno how to do it. i send 2 pics, so you can get it how to do it... and files too! can you assemble these parts please?
That's pretty straight-forward. If you do the tutorials on assembly mates, that will probably teach you enough in order to figure it out.
So, you have two parts, one a flat plate and the other a rolled sheet.
You want to position the rolled sheet on the plate so that the two chord edges on the inside cylindrical face-the ones that run parallel to the axis of the roll-are 2 millimeters above the plate.
Presumably, the end facees of the roll and the plate are coincident and aligned.
OK, to make this setup, you'll first model the parts.
Insert the plate into an assembly and fix it at the origin.
Insert the roll into the assembly and add the following mates
Coincident and aligned between the end face of the roll and the end face of the plate
Parallel between an edge of the roll that runs parallel to the axis of the roll and a side face of the plate
Distance of 2mm between the long edge on the inside surface of the roll and he top face of the plate
This will leave the the roll able to track left and right on the plate. If you want to center the roll, you can add a Width mate between the inner cylindrical surface of the roll and the side faces of the plates
Try that out and let us know how it goes.
John, If you look at the parts you'll see that they're both honeycombed. I think the below will work better:
Width mate between the the outer edges of the flat and the inner flat faces of the arc.
2mm distance mate between the top of the block and the inner edge of the circle.
Not sure how you want the two to align front to back, but a distance mate between edges should do it.
View the both attached zip files one contain the assembly files created in Solidworks 2015, and another contains the video of how the two parts get assembled.
Thanks and Regards

the video is very helpful, but i have solidworks 2013 and i cant open the assembled part.
Same process of the attached video, i'm using 2015 version SP 2.0 that's why you can't open the file.
