Assembly Constraints

Mastering the use of assembly constraints is an important part of learning to create assemblies in Inventor. Constraints are the glue and nails of construction when it comes to building your assemblies. Properly using assembly constraints will permit the construction of stable assemblies, assist in developing stack-up tolerances, and allow parts to be driven to show the animation of a process.

If you use assembly constraints improperly, you can create a nightmare of broken and/or redundant constraints, preventing assemblies from functioning properly, destroying assembly performance, and creating rework. Understanding how assembly constraints function in an assembly will help assure success in building and editing your design. ...
