HI @lostriver319



not being able to fully understand and imagine Your situation, I think, that if You define a variable motor for the angular relation in assembly, You should easily be able to animate it via ERA.

If you are using the drag component command to rotate the part, you can click "Orient Triad From Geometry" to select the hinge you want to rotate about.

I tried that and it keeps going back to the org xyz cord
