aling axis on diffrent planes or faces

Builder

Is there a way to aling two axis on a different face or plane to be aligned with each other?

 

The bolt on the left is contrained to a 0.090 hole and the bolt protudruding from the unistrut is contstrained to another assembly.  I want to make the assemblyies to align to each other by the bolt so that when the model is altered via variable table, the bolts will still align to each other. 

 

I tried tangent, flash fit, connect. 

 

Thank you for your input.

Hi @Lex-luthor

 

 

Yes this request is a little bit tricky but You can get it using the "Center Plane" relation.

 

Therefore You take as single selecet first reference the axis of the bolt and then the double selection of to planes from the hole part.

 

Unfortunateley You can not use both axis since the Center-Plane relation at least needs a double seelcte on one side (however and for what reason)

 

But it works.
