Reset mate when configuration changes

derek_westwoodderek_westwood Member Posts: 8
I have the above assembly of a gate leg table with three configurations- Open,  Closed and Half open.
When I change the configuration I have to reset the mates to achieve the correct appearance. Is this correct or am I missing something?
Thanks in anticipation, Derek

    Hi Derek, I've run into the same issue when positioning rotating parts. The best solution I have found is to configure the limits on a single revolute mate rather than using mate suppression with multiple mates.
