I'm using inventor 2009.

I haven't been able to find a solution but can't seem to locate in here in discussion groups.

 

I need to limit motion when one part bumps into another.  I am an occasional user and cannot seem to find this in the help files or tutorials.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi jjs38,

 

You can use the Contact Solver tools to do this. Here are a couple of links on the subject:
