How to tie 3d sketch to some components in assembly? (make it flexible)

By Олег Ефименко on 28 Oct 22:27 1 answer 2151 views 0 comments

I created 3d sketch between 2 parts in assembly, and I need to make this sketch flexible. On one side it is grounded. Another side should follow second moving part of the assembly .
And here is 2 problems: or after sketch creation second part stops moving(looks grounded), or part is moving but sketch is not connected with second part.

    Hi Олег
    if it's easy for your to share your assembly we can give a try...

    However what you need to do is to make this 3D sketch adaptive and not flexible...
    The flexible option in the assembly environment is working for sub-assemblies that have already some kind of DoF due to constrains and you want to demonstrate this freedom in your main assembly...

    I hope that makes sense to you otherwise you can share your model to arrange a mini tutorial just for you mate!
