Grounded Parts in Assembly

I've been grounding parts in an assembly. Every time I zoom in, there is always a part or two that is out of ground. I have to go over the assembly to see if a part is out of alignment. Is there a different or added command to tie into the ground command. The assembly is maybe ten parts, very small assembly.. Any ideas.

You should only be grounding one part that would be the base or foundation for all other parts.  All additional parts should be placed with the Assembly constraints of Mate, Align, Connect, etc... to precisely position and constrain the parts to others that are already constrained.

Greg, do these 'moved' details still display the blue diamond icon in the assembly tree, indicating they are grounded?


When parts are grounded, the only way you can move them is by shifting or rotating them with the steering wheel. I would suspect if they have moved, you have accidentally moved them with the steering wheel at some point.
