How to prevent parts from intersecting

Hi, our team has begun development on our robot within creo. I want to demonstrate an arm and how far it can move but the parts intersect when I use the drag components button. For the FTC field the balance arms some how don't intersect with the floor mats when using drag components. I would like to know how this functionality was achieved so we can implement it into our design. Any ideas?

This is accomplished by establishing a range of acceptable motion for your connection. If you have obtained the motion via kinematic connection (pin, slider, etc.) you can simply define the Rotation Axis constraint for a Pin connection or the Translation Axis constraint for a Slider connection.

These concepts were are all covered in the September Robotalk webcast series. Please check out the recordings for more information on workign with mechanisms in Creo.
