Is there a revolution constraint for a bolt?

I've assembled a bolt and a slide block that is constrained to a base plate  and am able to put everything in motion.  I have the slide block constrained to slide the distance of the base plate and when I reach the end the bolt continues to rotate when, if this was a real part, should stop.  How can I get this bolt to stop once the slide block reaches its ending constraint?

Hi aaronfue,

 

Most likely you'll want to place an Angle Constraint and then use the >> button to expand the options and add the Constraint Limits information to define the range of motion.

Also  just as an FYI for future reference, when you attach an assembly file you'll need to attach the part files also, otherwise when we download the assembly file it is empty.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

You posted an iam file.

An iam file is useless without the ipt files.
