The Bottom Line

Assemble components using assembly constraints. Assembly constraints are an important part of working with Inventor assembly files. Assembly constraints determine how assembly components fit together. As constraints are applied between components, degrees of freedom are removed.

Master It You are new to 3D and find the concept of assembly constraints a bit challenging. Where can you find a simple overview of constraints?

Organize designs using structured subassemblies. Subassemblies add organization, facilitate the bill of materials, and reduce assembly constraints; all this results in better performance and easier edits. One of the habits of all Inventor experts is their effective use and understanding of subassemblies.
