Catia Assembly: Doubt in Constraints

By shiva kumar on 02 Feb 18:52 5 answers 0 comments

I was doing a assembly and i encountered with this problem. i made the concentric constrain with the cylinder and hydraullic jack to align with their axes.. but when i move the jack axially it is moving a outside the cylinder. I want that jack to be stopped at the cylinder end. can any know how to do that? thank you in advance

    Hi friend!!

    could you please attachment a printscreen about your issue?

    or another option, to do is, Could you attach your model I mean the assembly.

    Have a good day,

    Hi friend, I was checking your model and you are OK, with add fix to cylinder holder, and move the cylinder. I've attached an image, as a reference.

    Currently I dont know if you are making a animation or kinematic movement.

    Another question for you, is are they all the components? or they are missing some components.

    whatever comments or suggestions just let me know.

    Have a good day,

    I guess the question is: How do you move it?
    The compass won't care about constraints.
    If you youse "manipulation" and activate "with respect to constraints" and "stop manipulate on clash" it should work.
