Best practices in Assembly Design

Assembly design: Two or more catparts combined together/assembled under Assembly Workbench. Later the catparts are given constraints like offset, angle or surface constraints etc between each other. This conventional method will be suitable if we know the position of the components upfront. But just in case, If we need to decide the position of the […]
