Learn how to add a Design Library element in a real-world scenario.
- Okay so we've created our panel cutout design feature right here under awesome features. So I'm going to come over, I'm going to try and add it. Okay, and see it placed, and you can override the dimensions here notice if you wanted to, you could come in here and you can modify them, or you could just edit the sketch, and you can see that you can modify that sketch any way you want. So I can come in here, and I can add a relationship between this point and the origin, and set them up to line it up.
Okay, and add a dimension to adjust the position, and there it is. How easy was that, and now I can add that feature to any sheet metal part and reuse it as many times as I want. Doesn't the design library rock?
