    Default Coonstrain Matters

    Hi ALL,
    I currently have 2 parts (a disc & a lid) in assembly.
    The problem is that I cannot constrain two faces (showing one in red & another is pink).
    Please find the attached files in v2010.

    Your helps are much appreciated.

    Simply the lid covers the disc.
    Don't worry if the surface angles are different.
    Thanks.

    I did this two different ways.

    Quick and Dirty:
    Make both parts into a Contact Set state
    Turn on Contact Solver
    Push them together
    Get Distance offset for CPs
    Use that value for Mate offset for CPs

    More precise:
    Created Surface in one part to represent where it would contact the other part. Constrained surfaces to edge of disc.

    Yes, I tried what you mentioned & I prefer the second method.
    Thank you very much.
