3D Assembly Modeling
From small to huge
Create basic assemblies or go big with fully defined and documented models containing thousands of parts.
Quickly define relationships between parts using a variety of constraints to build your design.
Mirror and pattern
Leverage patterns for repetitive tasks like fastener insertion or even core design components. Create mirror features that result in other-handed versions of parts or assemblies.
Combine several parts into a single body, subtract a model from a blank to create a mold, and more.
Replace a component with another automatically with options to skip instances.
3 connectors must be replaced with new versions
A single command replaces all 3 with a different component
Make exploded views for documentation and even interactive assembly/disassembly guides using
Create cuts or holes through several parts at once, ensuring alignment of holes.
A sketch at the assembly level serves as a profile to cut through everything
Multiple parts are cut simultaneously
Check for interferences
Find where parts overlap early in the design process so issues can be addressed prior to manufacturing. Highlight overlapping volumes and wireframe all parts that don't overlap for fast analysis.
Once constrained, drag components around in the assembly to see how they will move in the real world. Test mechanism movements, range of motion, and more.
A nested design structure brings order and repeatability to the design process. Create smaller building blocks and combine them together into a finished product.
Global design variables
Control dimensions and other parameters across multiple parts from a single, global design file. Cascade changes instantly across many parts as the design updates.
