assembly in assembly

i am trying to figure out how to put assembly 1 into assembly2 but still have the components of assembly 1 still rotate and such. they always seem grounded when trying to do this. can someone help?

thanks in advance

In your assembly 2 right click on “assembly 1” and check flexible, you can also achieve this from the parts tree.

Be careful doing this with too many parts as it is a resource hog.


another question, i need to make a mirror image of an entire assembly. is there a tool for doing this or will i have to remake the assembly altogether

Ya there is

  1. Save the assembly
  2. Open a new assembly
  3. Place the old assembly in the new one
  4. Find the mirror tool, it should be on the default icon list at the top of your screen under the assemble tab
