Assembly question - plate rotation with shaft

Recommended Posts

wissam

Hi

 

i have a plate and a shaft. i am able to constraint the shaft to be tangent to the plate and constraint it to be on a specified location. However. i need to make the plate rotate when the shaft rotates as if it is one unit. the shaft is to be welded to the plate. i tried everything within the joint or constraint. i also tried to weld the plate and shaft as single assembly but i couldn't weld with the shaft tangent with 0 offset.

all i need is to fix the shaft on the plate and make the plate rotate with the shaft.

In the Shaft file, create a plane that is Tangent to the shaft and parallel to the origin plane in the middle of the shaft. From there use a Mate or Flush constraint in the Assembly with that new work plane to a face of the plate.
