Mate connectors fastened and revolute.

Ben12Ben12 Member Posts: 7
I am trying to fastened 2 parts using mate connectors (fastened 2), it works well, then I want those 2 fastened parts to revolute along another mate connector.....what's happened...only one part of the fastened parts is turning ???
I don't know how to manage that issue???
Thanks for any help..

    I'm not sure what you mean.

    It looks like the blade and the pulley are moving together.

    By the way, you do not need to create mate connectors explicitly like you have.
    Just use a mate, it will automatically create 2 mate connectors for you.

    Mate Connector 4
    Mate Connector 5
    Mate Connector 1
    Mate Connector 3

    can all be deleted

    Also, you will want only one part to be FIXED in place, otherwise everything is acting like it is in outerspace, and things move funny.
    In your case, I right clicked the blue plate, and made that fixed.
