Is there a way to apply limitations to assembly part movement. Example: If my assembly were a vice , I would like to set limits on the travel of the clamping mechanisms. Basically when I slide the moving clamping part it would stop moving in the closing direction when 2 specific surfaces make contact.

Thank you. I thought about it, and started to wonder if I were to write an expression for the value of a distance constraint, if that might work, what do you think?

You can define additional assembly arrangement and make the distance constraint as arrangement specific. Here you can use an expression while specifying the distance constraint as arrangement specific.
