Infer Constraints



It used to be (and still can be) that you could only apply constraints to objects after they were created. One problem that we frequently ran into especially using the “auto constrain” tool was “Over-Constraining” these objects.

New in 2011 is the INFER toggle on the status bar (drafting settings buttons).
Turn this toggle on and start drafting and don’t worry about the constraints. they will take care of themselves.

This blog serves as a knowledge base for myself (and anyone else) so that I can reference tips & tricks that I have learned and also refer others to it as well. I hope that this blog helps you learn at least one tip to make your drafting/design experience better.
