Re: Another contraint problem...

I finally completed my part design. I used ASSEMBLY2 to put the pieces together. The only thing I didn't figured yet, is how to put a mesh texture on the middle part. I saw something about a macro to do that but I didn't found the macro yet. http://www.stoudesign.com/temp/FiltreAssemblageCapture.JPG...
