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.

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.

Mirror Component creates opposite-hand, but otherwise identical, versions of parts or subassembies. Specify which components are mirrored and which are purely copied (i.e. fasteners, which should not be mirrored). The geometry of a mirrored component changes to create a truly mirrored version, known as an \"opposite-hand\" version. Mirror components about an assembly plane. Create mirrored versions of parts in an assembly. Create opposite-hand versions of parts.

Model parts in the context of an assembly, using references to other components to complete the design. The design intent for new parts (sizes of features, placement of components in the assembly, etc.) comes from other components in the assembly. Build a virtual part in the context of an assembly by employing Top-Down assembly modeling techniques. Create features in the assembly context by referencing geometry in mating parts. Understand InPlace mates and external references. Identify external references in the FeatureManager design tree.
