Constrained Parametric Sketching

The Design Constraint Manager in Alphacam V7 Advanced Modules allows us to take charge of how our sketches react when elements within the sketch are modified. Element lengths and distances between elements can be driven by parameters and the sketch re-solved instantly. This is an excellent tool for any manufacturer making families of parts with dimensional changes. Fully constraining a sketch eliminates distortion of the shape when dragging. We can also drive the behavior with Parameters set at values. These can control dimensions of length, distance, angle and radius values, etc.

Students may bring files for review and recommendations.
