Unformatted text preview: ll components change as design evolves? By thinking about this early, you can design components and features as foundations 6 Planning for Design Flexibility Parametric modeling parallels the design process Starts with a 2D sketch of a portion of the component Just like a pencil and paper, except CAD Rough drawing with general shape Start adding constraints 7 Sketch Constraints Parametric modeling software solves your sketch by defining geometric and dimensional constraints You can add or remove constraints To take advantage of the parametric modeler's benefits, plan your work 8 Adding Features to Models The order of creation determines how a model is updated You have the ability to reorder operations What happens to the rest of the model if a feature changes? 9 Editing...
