Sketch Improvement – Constraint Color on Basic Elements

Knowing where you are at-a-glance within an engineering sketch and what it means is critical for efficient engineering design. TopSolid 7’s sketcher improvements allow you to create a default color for elements hooked to basic elements when creating bottom-up assemblies.

This color identification allows to you more easily visually navigate your assemblies. Learn more by watching this very brief video demonstration.

TopSolid 7 – Build a Bottom-Up Assembly

Bottom up assembly tutorial

Hi again!  This video tutorial will introduce you to the basics of building a bottom-up assembly within TopSolid 7.  The tutorial is broken into 12 videos.  The goal in each video is to either teach you one or two new things about working with assemblies in TopSolid 7, or it will give you the ability to practice what you have already learned.

Assembly

Before you begin watching the tutorials, I suggest that you take a minute and download the samples that go with the tutorials.  You will find each below.
