Hello everybody,
you may know the problem and can help me:

I would like to test an installation situation in an assembly. One part is to be swiveled into another. To do this, I set one installation condition and left the rest open. If I now try to rotate the part to be inserted with Ctrl + Alt + MM keys, this also happens, but completely uncontrollably! It jumps from one angle to the other, but cannot be slowly rotated to the desired position (for testing).

Is there a trick to make these uncontrollable rotations slow and controllable?
Thank you very much for your efforts!

I know the problem. This is particularly annoying with more complex parts / assemblies, because there may also be jerking, and you usually get further away from the desired position.
But I don't know any solution for it, except to set at least one second condition (align plane on plane with angle).
This is usually needed anyway, because the direction from / in which the part is moved usually has a certain meaning.

Yes, the second condition would be good, but unfortunately I cannot use it in my case because the part is not turned in (only rotation around an axis) but pivoted (shifting and turning). This is really nerve-wracking!

Another possibility would be to make the BG or the component that is to be moved "flexible". For more information, see the manual or the help tool.
This allows different installation situations to be visualized.
Good luck with it and goodbye
