Learn how to suppress mates within the animation MotionManager. Discover how this is useful to increase the possible movements of an assembly.
- [Instructor] In many cases when creating manual animations…using click and drag method, I may need to suppress mates…in order to allow my components…to move how I'd like them to.…So in this case for example let's try to make an animation…of this vice closing, so I'd like this component here…to kinda move in and close,…so if I just try to do a click and drag here…of this component, notice it's not allowing me…and it's actually telling the selected component…is fully defined and cannot be moved.…
So that means right now it has a number of mates,…that's kind of locking it in so it's not really allowed…to move in really any direction here.…What I'm gonna have to do is suppress…or temporarily turn off some of these mates…in order to allow me to move this clamp.…So let's take a look at how we can do this…within the MotionManager,…first I'm gonna click on the component here,…just to see exactly what component I'm dealing with,…and I can see it will highlight automatically…in my assembly tree, so I'm seeing that this component…
