    Constraining a Revolve in ALL directions.

    I have attached a family file that I am working on. All of the extrusions need to be fully constrained. The only geometry that I can't constrain is the Revolves. I can constrain them from going up and down in all views but I can only constrain them from going right to left in the view that the 2D geometry for the revolve is created. Examle if I create the Revolve in the front view it can be constrained from moving right to left but if I go to the right view it still moves right to left and I can't seem to figure out how to constrain the geometry to prevwnt this from happening.

    Can someone PLEASE help me to get these Revolves constrained? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Have you tried aligning and locking the blue axis line to the center reference line? in the front(back) and/ or left(right) view(s)

      You need to set the workplane of the revolve. this will clear the possibility to move in the other direction. In your family, select the revolve. Click Edit Workplane and set it to Center (Left/Right). This does the trick...

        You are CORRECT!!!!! That did the trick. THANK YOU so much for your response/help, it is greatly appreciated.

        Thanks also to JCM. I had aligned the axis with the reference plane and it still wasn't constrained in all directions.
