Sudden issue with planar and mate relationships in an assembly

  Posted by Siemens Community , 14 November 2017 · 105 views

I've run into an issue in an assembly where I'm having problems placing parts using mates or planar aligns.  This occurs with parts I have successfully constrained to others.  In the attached picture, I'm simply trying to mate a 6-32 nut to the flange of a cover.  If I make a make a new assembly file just using the cover and the nut, they assemble just fine.  Also, this same issue occurs on a plastic strip when trying to install a screw.  Both axial and planar mates fail.  I had no issues with this in ST9.  I've rebooted etc. to see if there we any other issues.  Also, when I run an error report, I get lots of message about needing addtional constraints (lots of axial aligns not locked) but no lightning bolts or other critical messages in the tree.  Any thoughts?Mate Failure.JPG
