SOS moving an object!


New member
I have a draw with 2 objects (a base and a cone), and when i made a shell to the base the cone didn't touch anymore the base, i have a distance of 1mm from the cone to the base, and i want to delete that distance so that the cone touch the base.

Please help... how do i do this?

To move a part within an assembly, from the Assembly toolbar, "move component", "rotate component". These tools move a part into position to mate. You can also just click and drag a part if there are no mates.
