    Mating Problem

    Ben Mitchell

      I'm having a problem mating a hinge feature in an assembly and wondering if anyone has tips.

       

      I'm desiging a swinging "door" where bent wire hook hangs over a rod.  Low, low tech.

       

      In "the real world" this is a sloppy joint - the inside diameter of the bent rod is about 1/8" greater than the rod diameter it hangs over.  In SW, I just want to model it as if the hook had a force field keeping it concentric around hinge bar.  If I select the two parts it won't allow me to assert concentricity.  Not sure what the right way to create this mate is.

      Three files attached as well if you want to get really involved :-)

       

      Thanks for any help you can offer!
