Adaptive requires geometry from other items to be projected and referenced by items within the sub assembly. Possibly you wish for a sub assembly such as a hinge to move/articulate within the main assembly, look at "Flexible".


RMB on the sub assembly within the main assembly and select "Flexible" from the drop-down menu.
