NX7.5 – Assemblies


Tags: Assembly, bottom-up, exploded view, component array

In this lesson, we shall put together some parts that eventually will become the radial engine as in the picture above. For this assembly, we will use the bottom-up method, which is more common to use compared with the top-down. We are also going to introduce the constraint Angle. In addition to this, we will introduce Exploded view of an assembly. This is a way to separate the parts from each other, to see how the components are put together. Finally, we will take a look at Component Array, which allows you to add components in a linear or circular pattern.
