Fixing the first Component:
After inserting components into an assembly, you have to define constraints between them. By applying constraints, you can make components to flush with each other or two cylindrical faces concentric with each other, and so on. As you add constraints between components, the degrees of freedom will be removed from them. By default, there are six degrees of freedom for a part (three linear and three rotational). Eliminating degrees of freedom will make components attached and interact with each other as in real life. Now, you will learn to add constraints between components After placing the component at the origin, it is free to move. You can check the degrees of freedom by using the Degree(s) of freedom command.
1. Double-click on the Part in the Specification Tree.
2. On the Menu bar, click Analyze > Degree(s) of freedom. A warning message appears showing the degrees of freedom of the selected component.
3. In order to remove the degrees of freedom of the first component, double-click on Product1 in the Specification Tree.
4. On the Constraints toolbar, click the Fix Component button (or) click Insert > Fix on the Menu bar.
5. Select the first component to fix it at the origin. You will notice that the Fix glyph appears on the components.
6. Now, analyze the degrees of freedom of the component. You can notice that the component is fully fixed at the origin.
