Trying to create a gimbal with a supporting frame, an outer square frame, and an inner square frame. when i insert the outer square frame into the supporting frame, i constrain it so that the axis of the hole i have drilled in my frame and the axis of the hole through my supporting frame are aligned, i then constrain a face of it to be a set distance from a parralel face of the supporting frame to centralise it. this works ok, and i can rotate this frame as i like. When, however i insert the inner frame and constrain the axes of the holes drilled through it to the axes of the other holes drilled through the outer frame, and two faces to be a set distance apart, it allows me to rotate my inner frame, but no longer allows me to rotate my outer frame! what have i over-constrained?! HELP!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your Frame is not Grounded.
Attach your assembly here.
I assume you have moved it from the origin location.
I recommend that you unground it and then add Mate Flush constraints between the assembly and frame origin workplanes (I then prefer to Ground the part for good measure).
