How can I make an assembly still able to move when placed in another assembly instead of the smaller assembly just being a large static piece?
I am creating a live steam shay locomotive from Kozo Hiraoka's book, Building the Shay. I am trying to make a large assembly including the frame, trucks, and engine on the side of the locomotive. I would like to know how to place the truck and engine assemblies that I have already created in a new assembly so I do not have to rebuild each of them in the main assembly. My problem is that the trucks and engine no longer move when I place them, so is there a way to make them so that I place them and still be able to turn the crankshaft for example on the engine in the big assembly? Thanks!
Hi Ryan yes there is, when you place the SUB ASSY inside the MASTER ASSY on the tree browser right click on the SUB ASSY and look for a little icon that looks like a vid cam it shall be called (( FLEXIBLE )) activate that and it will be able to move inside your MASTER ASSY but it will only work on a child parent relation ship and not go any further.
