Move/Copy Bodies

In multibody parts, you can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates.

To move, copy, rotate, or mate a solid or surface body:

  1. Click Move/Copy Bodies (Features toolbar) or Insert > Features > Move/Copy.
    The Move/Copy Body PropertyManager appears. This PropertyManager displays one of two pages:
    Translate/Rotate Specify parameters to move, copy, or rotate bodies. For Translate and for Rotate using the Euler's angular rotation, you can enter equations and variables in the fields. You can also add the equations to a design table and control them there.
    Constraints Apply mates between bodies.
  2. Click Translate/Rotate or Constraints at the bottom of the PropertyManager (if necessary) to switch to the page you want.
  3. Set options in the PropertyManager.
