Configured Angular Positions of Assemblies
I do a lot of multiple position assemblies. In the past, I used to use multiple mates to drive angle around a pivot, i.e. a revolute mate with a combination of parallel mates that are suppressed or un-suppressed for various positions and a free state but this has proven to be problematic with flipping positions and suspreed mates in a list are a little annoying. I am very excited now with a new method I have found of configuring the limits on the Revolute mate, this is proving to be much more reliable and flexible and doesn't required suppressing of mates between positons or to a free state.
