How to keep my assembly from moving when switching configurations

Hello all,

 

First time post. I have read a couple of threads in the past. I ran into a problem i cannot figure out and am seeking some assistance. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

 

I have an adjustable arm assembly that i have mated using the lock mate so that only one joint is able to move at a time. I tried using different configurations to suppress the lock mates to allow the movement. This works great, except for when switching between configurations the parts go back to the position that was last used in the previous selected configuration.

 

Is there a way to update the position of the assembly from the last used configuration?

 

Is there a better, easier way to accomplish what i am trying to do?

 

 

Thanks,
