Hi, I was wondering how to make the nut in this assembly turn with the thread, all I can figure out how to do is put it all the way in then turn it 360 degrees.

Welcome to the forum.

I didn't watch this entire video, but see if it is what you are looking for.

An assembly file (*.iam) is only a list of hyperlinks to part files (*.ipt) and a record of assembly constraints.

Attach the part (*.ipt) files here.

 

I don't think that video shows relative motion, but you will use Rotational/Translation constraint (perhaps with a couple of tricks).
