Create component constraints to build relationships between repositioned components.
- Here I have my assembly with my components…scattered out into space.…Now I'm going to bring these components back into alignment…with one another using constraints.…Now look over to the side and you'll see I have a toolbar,…bring this out, with my constraints.…You have coincidence, contact, offset, angle and fix.…Now with every assembly, you need to have one component…that is fixed into space, meaning it cannot move.…
If you don't fix a component, what could potentially happen…is that as you constrain components and go around your parts…things could shift in ways you don't expect.…So by fixing one of the components,…in this case the cup holder lower,…I know that it will not move from that position.…Now what's also good about that fix constraint…is if I do manage to somehow move this out of position,…there's little update button right at the bottom.…
Looks like a little swirl.…If I hit the update, it takes that fixed component…and moves it back to the original position it was once in.…So if you do happen to accidentally move…
