Know the Difference between Fix and Default constraints in CREO Parametric Assembly Design

A constraint in computer-aided design (CAD) software is a limitation or restriction imposed by a designer or an engineer upon geometric properties of an entity of a design model that maintains its structure as the model is manipulated.

In this Tech Tip, we will explain about the difference between ‘Fix’ and ‘Default’ type constraints in Assembly Design using Creo Parametric. Apparently these two types of constraints look similar as they both make the model fully constrained, but we will see two examples wherein we can understand the distinct difference between these two constraints.

How to Place a 3D Annotation Note Inside a Box in PTC Creo

In this i GET IT Tech Tip, we will show you how to place a 3D Annotation Note inside a box.

This methodology will create a note containing a digit inside a box and then by referring to that digit i.e. the Note Number, we will place additional long text which will explain about what actions are supposed to take place at the locations shown with the notes.
