Mating to Component Arrays

Mating to Component Arrays

Mating to Component Arrays

Whenever I use a Component Array... if I mate to it everything looks perfect. If I relocate a part previous to creating the Array it goes whacky. Some components change from being mated from one side to the other... other components won't move with the change, but all the mating conditions will still highlight as I pick each one verifying that my conditions are correct... but the components won't move.

We got together to try different things, one instance we suppressed one mating condition and the "one" component popped into place. However that condition had nothing to do with the direction being constrained, but at least when the condition was unsuppressed the component stayed where it was supposed to. When we tried to do the same thing with another identical component... nothing.
