Hello, when I try to select the edge of the circular edge of the back rod to mate, I get an error saying "unable to mate the selected entities". Not quite sure what is wrong. Here is a picture of the problem and the assembly file.
i coincident mated the faces then distance mated the back rod top plane 3.5mm from the back wing mount right plane
then i added a plane to the back rod part that is perpendicular to the angled face
and i distance mated that from the face of the wing 1.25mm
you need to use "pack and go" and make the zip folder
to have the parts in the "Sub_assembly5.SLDASM.zip
yours is empty kelef
The annoying thing though is that the parts are there anyways but it forces you to suppress them..
like come on solidworks just deal with it, i know you can do it, stop whining.
Solidworks whines less than inventor but programs should learn from 3DS max to just do stuff anyways like a proper tool.
3ds max is like, "you wanna edit the cube you have beneath 10 edit poly modifiers?o:? ok here goes nothing >:)" *proceeds to make a ridiculous monstrosity that doesnt resemble the model*
"Thank you 3ds max.. thank you for trying" :")
Ok I added all the parts. Hope that helps.
he said use pack and go
Sorry, I'm not quite sure what that means...
its in the file drop down it automatically saves an assembly with all its parts and other cool stuff into one folder
ok so what are you trying to mate it to
Perfect! Did you encounter the same problem as I did?
no, I cant tell which entities you were trying to mate when you got the problem
Hmm, interesting let me try it again.
Ok, it still won't let me mate the circular edge of the back rod. How did you do it?
the rod is cut at an angle so the edge is not a circle
So what did you do?
Thanks! An interesting way to do it but in the end accomplished the goal. Kudos to you!
Ok finally got that pack and go thing. Hopefully you can still views the parts in the zip file. So I want to mate it to the edge in the pic.
that's correct about it been oval that is the problem...but
it still has a centre point- set construction lines in the part
selected the point and hub- set as concentric
my take on it in zip
have a good'n kelef
I came to this thread because I couldnt select entities (points and edges). Found the error myself.
I tried to select edges and points whilst beeing in a "Section View" ^^
