Now that we have a solid understanding of what Constraints are, how they work, and how to manage them,…we can continue assembling parts. Before we get started, in the previous movie we heard…an audio indicator, and we saw a preview when a constraint was applied.…A lot of times people find the audio indication a little disruptive during the design process,…so I am going to show you how to turn that off for this movie.…If you go the Application menu and select Options you can make sure this Assembly tab…is selected, and there's a check box that says Constrain audio notification we are going…to unchecked that so that we can disable that notification.…
We still get the preview so we can see the constraint, but the noise won't distract us during the process.…Now we are ready to begin constraining parts.…I am going to right-click and bring up my Constraint dialog box from the Marking menu,…and I am going to constrain the Crankshaft to the Engine Block.…I am going to that by selecting the center axes of the Crankshaft and a center axis that…
