As many have guessed, I love a simple but effective solution. In my post last week, I discussed showing extended file names in Autodesk Inventor's feature browser.
|Extended names shown in a part.|
This option will show which components a constraint is acted on, right next to the constraint!
But why talk about it, when a few simple screen captures can show it all! Let's see how to turn that function on.
I'm going to start with a baseline. Expanding the Relationships folder, the default behavior can be seen. The type of constraint, and offset can be seen..
|An example of an assembly with constraints in their "as installed" state|
On the Assembly tab, make sure the "Display component name after relationship names" option is checked.
Once this option is checked, click OK to close the dialog box. Now take a look! The component names are displayed after the constraints.
|Now, I can see component names behind the constraints|
Now, there's an another option to viewing components behind constraints! So take a look at this setting and see how it can work for you!
