connections in assembly mode

does any one know how, or where i can find out how, to use this feature?

i am trying to assemble a part & have it rotate on an axis.
i cant get it to translate, i am picking the wrong refs but what do i use to make it work?

RE: connections in assembly mode

Are you making a skeleton part? I would suggest making a skeleton that has a "through" ( axis ) and angle ( from a plane ). By assembling your components to these skeletons features, you can modify the angle valuse of the plane and the assembled components will move with the skeleton.

RE: connections in assembly mode

Assemble by insert, allign/mate and orient plane of component to datum plane created on the fly through an axis parallel to the assembly feature and at an anfle to a plane in the assembly. Modifying the compent in assembly will shange its angle of rototion to desired angle.

RE: connections in assembly mode

Assemble by inserting one part into another one.Next reference should be mate or align.Choose a datum plane of part and creat datum plane (on the fly) in assembly through axis and angle with a datum plane. Give some angle (as desired) to the datum plane. and assemble.
Now you can change this angle any time without failure.
