Hello,
Is there a way to have more freedom with circular mate connector

So that the blue part can move in all the hole created by the orange part...

    the closest thing I can think of would be a planar with limits on motion along the X and Y axes, but this might result in jerky/not very aesthetic motion. I would recommend keeping it as just a revolute within the assembly. You could set up an assembly configuration that switches between the two depending on demonstration needs, (lmk if I should elaborate) but imo it's not strictly necessary.
