Rotate and Place components in an Assembly

In this Video we will describe about rotating and placing components in an Assembly.

  1. We have following components, which we want to place and constrain in an Assembly like this.
  2. So create a New Assembly File and start placing the components.
  3. The first component placed in an Assembly is always ‘Grounded’ and there is no need to constrain it.
  4. Now we are going to place the ‘Part8’ in the Assembly.
  5. To properly position the Part8 for Mate we will use ‘Rotate Component’ Command which is located in the Position Panel of Assemble Tab.
  6. After selecting the Part8, click anywhere outside the reticle to start the rotation.
  7. The component is positioned for the Mate now.
  8. Start the ‘Constrain’ Tool.
  9. Click this face and then this face.
  10. Now click Apply.
  11. The Rewind Tool is very useful to restore the most recent view or scroll through all of the save views.
  12. In the same way, other four Parts can be placed, positioned and constrained to get the desired result…..
  13. Now Assembly is fully constrained, there are no Degrees of Freedom that can be checked in this way…
