Our office uses Wildfire 2.0.
Occasionally when we assemble two items, the "Automatic" constraint
type goes to an "Align Angle" or "Mate Angle," for which we give the
degrees, instead of an offset distance. This is desirable.
..this particular constraint type does not appear whenever we want one.
It's not in the drop-down box. Even our most experienced ProE user in
the office can't figure out how to invoke that constraint type to come
up when wanted. (It would help a lot in getting min and max
articulation angles set for the assembly.)
In assembling 3 similar assemblies together, I used very similar
references -- an axis (for the rotation), two side surfaces to mate and
two top surfaces for alignment. One of the unions resulted in a "align
angle" that would rotate about the axis. The other merely aligned the
two top surfaces as "oriented."
How do I get that "align angle" to appear in the assembly???
