About Snapping Objects Using Smart Target
|While creating or editing a track, a simulation, or a shuttle,
lets you snap an object to a precisely specified location on another
object. In addition, you can cumulate several targets. Indeed, using a
historical target can help to put some elements in a specific position.
In some cases, you need to reposition objects on the geometry (i.e., on
the symmetry axis.)
For example, suppose you need to reposition the screw in the hole.
If you do not work in design mode, which means you do not have the original geometry, three options are available to reposition the object (shuttle or product in track):
Case 1: Use Smart Target from the Manipulation pop-up toolbar in one shot.
A coincidence constraint is created, the object is snapped to the desired location.
|Case 2: Use Smart Target
from the Manipulation pop-up toolbar in multiple shots.
Two coincidence constraints are created.
|Case 3: Use Ctrl
key and the 3D compass. This method is the easiest way to snap the shuttle
When you work in design mode the original geometry is available. Smart Target recognizes the geometric features (edges and faces).
