Define an accurate 2D profile or sketch using Geometric and/or Dimensional Constraints. Geometric Constraints create and uphold relationships between sketch entities while Dimensional Constraints specify distances or angles between the sketch entities. Assign Geometric Constraints such as Horizontal, Vertical, Coincident, Perpendicular, Parallel, Tangent, etc. Create Dimensional Constraints with numeric values with labels. Manage Dimensional Constraints for edit, delete and create user-defined parameters.

Manipulate the 3D Model view properly to work on the geometry as intended. Use a variety of tools to enable rotating the model freely, updating the model view type and to add custom coordinates systems to get the right location and angle. View the 3D model at different angles such as Top, Bottom, Left and various isometric angles. Use the computer mouse or orbit command to freely pan, zoom and rotate the 3D model. Learn to view with different view types such as Wireframe, Hidden, Gouraud, Flat with Edges, etc. Setup custom coordinates systems with CCS defining based on a view or entity.

Create some very complex 3D surfaces or geometries by defining a mesh with custom contours and numerous editable points for better control and design. Create basic primitive mesh shapes as a starting point to the design. Generate individual mesh faces using 3D Face tool. Control a network of mesh points by defining an outer perimeter with the Edge Mesh tool to fill it in. Use the 3D Mesh command allowing to define the location of every point in a mesh.

Get the models closer to the finished geometry by learning to modify, remove, combine, slice or replicate the 3D geometries. Use Boolean operations such as Union and Subtract. Reshape the edges of 3D geometries using Fillet Edges or Chamfer Edges with different options. Remove or split the material of 3D geometries using the Slice tool Replicate geometry in multiple instances throughout the design with Mirror 3D and Pattern 3D
