Learn about how constraints are what determine the shape and size of your curves.
- [Narrator] Here I want to talk about applying constraints.…Now, there are several ways to apply constraints in V5,…and to be quite frank, all you really need…is this one icon, constraint.…Since we're going to be using it over and over again,…just simply double-click on it.…That way, when you do go to use it,…you don't have to continuously go back and select the icon.…I've talked about this a little bit before,…but I want to stress that point.…So, I'm going to double-click on the constraint icon.…Now that it's active,…remember anytime something is orange, it means it's active,…I can go ahead and start applying my constraints.…
All sketches, every single sketch…needs to be defined by its location,…its shape, and its size…in order to fully constrain a sketch.…Now, a constraint is basically a rule, it's a law…determining how big a line is, or length of a line,…how big is an arc,…where does something sit out in space,…its relative position to external data,…or internal to the sketch.…Same thing with the shape.…What shape are we going to end up with?…
