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,
