Sketching in Solid Edge - part 2 A sketch is fully constrained when all sketch entities are completely defined. Simply creating a sketched entity does not constrain it Almost any sketched entity can be translated, rotated, or resized A completely constrained entity has a set of parameters that specify its location, orientation, and size. For instance: The parameters for a singe line are the planar coordinates of its endpoints or the planar coordinates of one endpoint together with its length and an angle from some reference datum The parameters for a circle are the planar coordinates of its center and its radius/diameter Once one entity is fully constrained, others may be constrained relative to the first. For instance, a second line may be partially constrained by defining it to be parallel or perpendicular to the first. Constraints consist of: geometrical relationships (parallel, perpendicular, tangent, etc.); and dimensions (linear and angular). 2
Sketching in Solid Edge - part 2 Completely constrained profiles/sketches are important When entities are completely constrained, you have control over the behavior of the sketch when modifications are made. If entities aren’t fully constrained, modifications to the sketch can change the sketch in random ways that may destroy hours of work. For a novice, constraining sketches can be very frustrating because the constraints needed are not always obvious. Start small - fully constrain each entity as it is created. As you gain experience, you can add constraints as needed after the basic sketch has been created. 3

Sketching in Solid Edge - part 2 Geometric relationships Geometric relationships are operations applied to sketched entities that relate them to the other sketched entities using standard geometrical concepts (e.g., collinear, parallel, perpendicular, concentric, tangent, connected, etc.) They make it much easier to define a sketch - a few geometrical relationships can replace dozens of dimensions.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
