component interface


Active member
In assembly mode when you need to assemble nuts and bolts or anything whose placement in the already assembled component , for example first component in the bottom up assembly, is predefined, for example a hole or cut, use comopnent interface.

To do so first enable option for component interface in your config.pro file. Then open your parts/components and go to setup and define component interface, then define atleast two interfaces, for example, insert and mate or align.

Now start assembly and after first component is assembled with normal procedure, then to assemble the second or succeeding components use component interface and this way you will see the speed of your assembly to be very fast.
