Models Colliding

Hi guys. Is there a way to see if two models you have in a assembly are colliding? I have ergonomic grip handle that is housing PCB electronics. I want to push the electronics as far into the cavity without them touch or hitting the enclosure. I know I can turn hidden lines on, but the shape and "busyness" of the assembly make it hard to tell. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well, there is a collision detection in Mechanism, if you have access to it. I believe there is also a way without it to check at the assembly level, under analysis. I'm not in Pro/E at the moment, but I think it's still there.

Are you talking about moving parts or simply interference detection? There are built in interference checks on the analysis tab.
