simple question: connecting parts in an assembly


New member
Hello all!

Not sure if this thread went through yesterday since it is saying i've never posted a thread on my account. As you can tell, I'm kinda new to this.

oh well, just to ask again. I have two parts X and Y. You can just view them as boxes. I just need the basic help of making sure they line up correctly. I can't seem to get them to line up (same angle) and more importantly, I can't get them to attach to each other. I need these components to be rigidly attached for future simulation purposes. I've been attempting mates and the move/rotate component feature.

Would anybody be able to help me on this?
