Move Component

You can change position, the direction of the components in assembly by the “Move Component” command.

Also, you can copy components while moving in assembly.

– Select “Move Component” command from “Menu=>Assemblies=>Component Position=> Move Component”

– Click on the “Move Component” command on Home Ribbon Bar.

– Click on the “Move Component” command on the Assemblies Ribbon Bar.

  1. Components to Move: Select components to move (to deselect components: press shift + left mouse button). After you select the component and click middle mouse button moving handle will occur in the center of the gravity of the part
  2. Transform: You can change the motion type from the box near the “Motion”. (I always use dynamic. It is enough for all movements.)
    Dynamic handle movements.
  • Point to point: Click origin of the handle then click then click new point to move the component
  • Distance: Click arrow then drag on the screen. Also, you can type distance on opening pop up.
  • Angle: Click on the point on handle defines angle. You can drag or type angle

Move Handles Only: click to move handle without component movement. Components stay stable while handles move.

3. Copy: To copy or not moving parts

  • No Copy: Move component without copying
  • Copy: Every movement of the component will create a copy of the component
  • Intermediate copy: It is for advanced users
