In Assembly Design of CATIA what is the difference between fully constrained and partially constrained??? And how can we find whether the product is fully constrained???
to see whether the model is fully constrained, do a explode after a update it must return in its original condition.
A fully constrained model is an model with 0 DOF (drgrees of freedom).
When your model have to mutch parts, then it is really hard ot impossible to fully constrain it with the usual way of assambly.
Buth there is a way to do it easy, I can make a tutorial for you if you want.
I will do tomorrow if I have time ;)
I haven't the time for a tutorial today.
The best way to solve your problem is the method that I will try to explain to you.
It is the best that you use for every part 3 geometrical constrains, 1 offset, 1 coincidence, and 1 angle, So will every part been fully defined.
For this you must create a part in this part you must create sketches, wiith points, and plaines.
This points must be the origins of axis systems from yout parts.
The coincidence constrain you will use for one of this points and a axsis of your part, then you must define a offset from one of this plains and an plain from your part (xy, xz or yz), and an angle betweet two plaines.
If you have problem, give me your mail, and I will send you an example.
yes as you said i have too much parts and i'm confused...
A tutorial would be greatly helpful....
There is an option to find whether the product is Fully constrain or not.
Go to Analyze -> Constraints -> There you can find the details of your product constrains
I hope this will help you.
