  6. Create a new Sketch on XY Plane.
  7. Draw a Circle of 97.021 mm diameter, coincident with the auto projected part origin.
  8. Create another Circle of 72.766 mm diameter. The distance between these two circles is 323.623 mm.
  9. Take the project of X Axis and convert it to construction geometry.
  10. The centre of small circle is 12.128 mm below the projected X Axis line.
  11. Draw a line connecting top of two circles as displayed.
  12. Take the project of YZ Plane and convert it to construction geometry.

  49. Select ‘Place component’ tool from the marking menu and place the ‘Locus of Tooth’ Part in the Assembly.
  50. Select the ‘Locus of Tooth’ Sketch from the Browser Bar, right click and deselect Grounded from the context menu.
  51. Select the ‘Locus of Tooth’ Sketch again and make it ‘Adaptive’ from the context menu.
  52. Align the model in appropriate position using the View Cube.
  53. Apply a Flush Mate between YZ Plane of Assembly and YZ Plane of Locus of Tooth.
  54. Apply a Flush Mate between XZ Plane of Assembly and XZ Plane of Locus of Tooth.
  55. Apply a Flush Mate between XY Plane of Assembly and XY Plane of Locus of Tooth.
  56. Apply a Mate Constraint between YZ Plane of Assembly and Work Plane1 of Locus of Tooth.
