In order to flex a universal joint, you need to break it to its ends and centre components.
- Use these components directly (parts 62519 / 62520)
- or place the shortcut 61903 and "inline it" (break it into components): Select it -> right click -> reorganize -> inline.

How to change angle to connect two joints

The rotate pin, even in finest grid, can't go lower than 1°. So to get precise rotation you need to use the manual rotate tool where you are able to key in the rotation angle (toolbar round arrow, shortcut ctrl+r). Remember that you can put the angle value given by the measure tool sinply by clicking in the value box.

For more details, see the advanced editing tutorial, shock absorber section at bottom: http://www.melkert.net/LDCad/docs/advEdit
