I've got a question. Maybe it sounds stupid, but here it goes
Can I attach a subassembly/part by more than one attachment point?
Scenario: I'm creating a suspension system. I've got a rear shock that consists of 2 parts. the main body and the moving rod. Now I've created an assembly file that combines both of them, let's call it shock assembly. It has a sketch that is used for the movement of the parts (and the sketch also limits max positions). So far it works great, no problem. But...
Now I want to add this shock assembly to be part of a bigger assembly. The bigger assembly contains the two body parts that are dampened by the shock. So this bigger assembly consists of part A and part B. each has a point where the shock should be attached.
Attaching the shock to part A is quite easy of course. (lower shock LCS to part A LCS). But how do I now attach upper shock LCS to part B LCS? In an ideal world keeping the constraints of shock assembly (min/max).
Or is this not possible?
Do I need to embedd main body and rod separatly in the "master assembly"? And define the shock sliding and min/max limits in the master assembly? And do this again for each and every "master assembly" that is using this shock?
Thank you very much for your answer,
