I am trying to assemble parts for a hydraulic cylinder but I can't do it, I can't get the piston to move forward and backwards within the case, help please

    Under the option Constrain use Type Mate and join two surfaces facing each other (inner bottom of cylinder and piston head) then use options under slide bar called Limits and type the limit dimensions. Minimum is zero position ( when the piston is set completely inside of cylinder) and maximum is a stroke of the piston.

    See if your part is flexible and not restrained by any Constraints or if your "Contact" is on or off

    I don't know how to check that, I have briefly used auto desk inventor, I struggle with the simulation of the assemblies, I don't know how to move the piston forward and back within the case, shall i upload the assembly so you can take a look?

    Small tip try to keep your number of parts to minimum ie you could made this in 2 parts.
