I have a couple of existing parts in an assembly that I have made some modifications to.  Now when trying to constrain any parts in the assembly, I keep getting a message that states "This constraint would create a circular dependency and is not allowed"  

Is there a way to find what this circular dependency is so I can eliminate it?

Thanks

you can use the inter-part copy manager to see the parent/child link

OK, where is Inter-Part manager located so I can try that next time.  I am still fairly new to this software, so trying to lean all the nuances.  

 

Anyway, I was able to solve the problem by a little trial and error.  I started deleting constraints until I could find one that caused the problem.  Once that constraint was deleted, then recreated the same, I had no more assembly problems.

 

Thanks for the help.
