Fixing a Component

This task shows you how to set the first constraint. This operation consists in fixing the position of a component in space so as to use this component as the base of the assembly.
  1. Select CRIC_FRAME in the specification tree or in the geometry area.

  1. Click the Fix Component   icon in the Constraints toolbar. The component CRIC_FRAME   is fixed immediately. The application indicates this by displaying a green anchor symbol component.

  Note also that the Constraints branch now displays the new constraint. The anchor symbol is preceded by a lock symbol, to make a distinction between "fix in space" and "fix operations". For more information, pleaser refer to Fixing a Component.
