Model won't center in stock

Hey All,

 

I cam'd my part up last night and everything looked good. This morning I imported some soft jaws and moved my part around a bit. Now it seems I cannot get my part centered in my .875 diameter stock. One edge sticks out of the stock no matter what I have tried. 

 

I don't know what I did that would have caused this. Any ideas?

Thank you,

 

Chris E.

Dragging parts around in design is always a risky proposition. You have a couple options:

1) Just model your stock in Design (using proper constraints and joints to the model) and select that in MFG as your Stock

2) create a sketch and an axis that gives you something to select for the normal method of stock definition

Modeling the stock worked. Thanks Seth!

 

That is going in the "tricks" box.

 

Best,
