Changing Constraints 

Changing a constraint means replacing the type of this constraint by another type. This operation is possible depending on the supporting elements. You can select any constraints, not necessarily in the active component.

This task consists of changing the parallelism constraint into an offset constraint.

Open the AssemblyConstraint05.CATProduct document.
1.  Select the constraint to be changed.

2.  Click the Change Constraint icon:

The Change Type dialog box that appears, displaying all possible constraints.

3.  Select the new type of constraint. For our scenario, select Offset.
4.  Click Apply to preview the constraint in the specification tree and the geometry.
5.  Click OK to validate the operation.
