Revolute Mate (Probably very simple)

steven_phangsteven_phang Member Posts: 5
Hi, I'm new to all of this...
Im trying to make a box with a rotating hindged lid on top with two parts: the box and the lid
I tried to put a revolute mate on it to see how it opened and it worked, but it rotates a full 360 degrees where the top of the lid will phase through the box. I wanted to test if the lid had enough clearence to swing open, but I can't if it just goes through the box anyway.

Is there a way to make it so it stops rotating if the top of the lid hits the box so it does not go through?
I appreciate any help I can get.
