Now that we've got all our components placed into our Assembly file, we are ready to begin the assembly process.…Before we begin, I wanted to talk a little bit about the different ways to create constraints.…Under the Assemble tab in the Position panel, there are two different options I want to…call out, there is the Constrain option and the Assemble option.…The Constrain option is the default way to create constraints in Inventor; the Assemble…option is a slightly more advanced version of that, that allows you to create multiple…constraints in a single action.…I don't recommend this option for those who are just starting out with Inventor.…
I think it's important for everybody to understand what constraints are, how they work, how to…edit and manage those constraints, and once you have that solid foundation, then you can…begin exploring the Assemble command.…In this movie, we are going to focus on a couple parts that we'll use to explain how…constraints work and how to edit and manage them.…Once we have that foundational understanding, then we'll move forward with assembling the remaining parts.…
