Limit a tangent mate

Hi, i'm working on a ball joint with a sphere and a plate mounted on it, i want to prevent every collision by giving a limit to the movement, is that possible?

Here a video showing the movement, as you can see the parts now are able to go one through the other:

You could limit an angle mate.

I tryed but doesn't seem to work, probably because the part can rotare on multiple axis at the same time (because is a tangent mate on a sphere).

Re: Limit a tangent mate

try to work with "motor feature" if you just want to show how it works.

This feature require not fully constrained part to move, rotate the subjected part.

How about a path relationship? Use a slot path or draw a sketch in assembly.

When you use drag components, use detect collision+ stop movement when collision.

It'd be cool if there was a gimbal relationship with collision detection or something along those lines which would function like the drag component but maintain as a constraint.

Maybe this kind of arrangement with a path constraint. The circle is the path, the line is the follwer. Sorry for the crappy video.
