I cannot seem to get Deformable Parts to work. After defining the part with deformable features in Modeling, when I go to the assembly and attempt to Deform it, I get ALL KINDS of grief, such as: "An attempt was made to associate an object with a second other part" (???), and this head-scratcher: "Selected objects will result in a self intersecting section Hint: Modify or delete the invalid curve" WHAT invalid curve? The part updates to any changes beautifully by itself outside the assembly, and I've tried to use sketched, fully contstrained extrusions whenever possible. Perhaps I've completely misread how to create a deformable part in the first place. Can someone please give me an example that works? -thanks
