Assembly Features 

  Prior to creating assembly features, keep in mind the following:
  • You can create assembly features only between the child components of the active product. The active product at least must include two components which in turn must contain one part at least.
  • You cannot create assembly features between two geometrical elements belonging to the same component.
  • You can only create assembly features on a component which allows part feature creation to be performed in assembly context. This excludes cross references, the component containing the inputs is contextual from one or several affected components, and external references, affected components which are already referenced from another assembly document.
  • The resulting features in the affected components are created after the Object in work in the related part documents. Therefore, only the geometries defined until the Object in work is taken into account in the assembly feature.
  See Assembly Features reference for more information.
  The different assembly features you can create are:
Split: click this icon, select the splitting face or surface, define the parts you need to split and define the portion of material to keep.
Hole: click this icon, select a face to define the hole location, define the parts on which you need to make the hole and define your hole.
Hole Series: in the Assembly Features Definition dialog bow, click the Series tab and select the parts of interest prior to defining holes.
Pocket: click this icon, select the profile to be extruded, define the parts from which you need to remove material and define the pocket.
Remove: click this icon, select the body to removed and define the parts from which you need to remove material.
Add: click this icon, select the body to be added and define the parts to which you need to add material.
