Is it possible to make a 3d constraint in solidworks ?

By Strophe on 21 Jan 01:00 5 answers 512 views 2 comments

For example a part can push another one. it can be a good way to simulate clearance between parts in old fashioned wood assemblies...
This constraint doesn't exist in solidworks unlike inventor, but maybe is there a workaround ?

    You can use the move component command and check the physical dynamics radio button. sometimes collision detection will also work.

    Abdul, you said "like that? Lock mechanism"
    and yes, like that !

    thanks a lot.

    In Assembly it is possible.... but in part mode may be with command "MOVE/COPY/PASTE"
    i will try and post it soon if i succeed...

    Thank you for your answer Abdul.
    Yes I am talking about assembly, 3d constraint (the inventor name of this constraint) between parts, and not in part mode.

    Oh yes, great Rollin, i didn't understood this fonction yet (4h day on cad/solidwks, building some theater sets for a client to learn basics).
    For my nexts creation, physical dynamics will be enough, thanks a lot !
