Assembly Constraints doesnt move the part after applying them

Hello!

 

I am not sure what could have happened to my settings this week, but I noticed when creating assemblies, applying a positional constraint, the parts don't move. In order to get the parts to "move" to their constrained position I have to try and drag them with the mouse then they snap into place. Also updating the assembly works as well.

 

What setting could I have changed so that once I press apply on a constraint it moves the part immediately?

 

Thanks,

 

Sean

Hi SeanFarr,

 

Sometimes adaptive parts can cause this behavior. If you have adaptive parts in the assembly and toggle the adaptivity off, does that help?

 

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

In your Application Options, Assembly tab - is the box for Defer Update checked or unchecked?

 

I believe turning that option on causes what you're describing.

BINGO!

 

I had 2 adapative parts in this assembly, this is first time I created parts within the assembly using project geomtry. Toggled off their adaptivity and the parts now snap into position after applying constraints.

 

Thanks Curtis!

I too am having the same problem.  I do not have any adaptive parts. DEFER UPDATE, is not checked.  Along with that after I apply one mate, the part locks into place. 

 

I created a new assembly, two parts, and I couldn't duplicate this.
