  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Create multi-body parts and generate assemblies from them
  • Create layout-based assemblies
  • Describe the relationships created between parts created in the assembly environment and explain their adaptive nature
  • Save time and effort in future designs by setting up models that adapt to change quickly and efficiently

Description

Description

In this class, we examine some of the methods to better define our models using design techniques that follow the Top-Down Design philosophy. We cover some of the most popular and useful methods of assembly modeling, including multi-body parts, layout assemblies, and adaptive assemblies and parts. These powerful models can adapt to design changes easily and save hours of part editing and manipulation. By focusing on the relationships between parts in the assemblies, we can remove the need to modify each part independently.

Target Audience

Target Audience

CAD users of any level who want to save time and effort while creating designs that are able to easily adapt to design changes
