Insert Constraint?

Insert Constraint?

What is the history of the "Insert" constraint for assemblies?  

I'm sure there used to be a constraint called "Insert".  I was using another CAD package for a while and when I came back to Pro/E (CREO) "Insert" was gone...

What's the story?

Thanks

Don't know if it happened at the same time, but here is a discussion where they changed mate & align to coincident.

At some point, a "simplification" of assembly constraints happened and INSERT got consolidated into to the ALIGN constraint.

On a good note, CENTERED was added and if you have ever used it successfully, it is awesome for conical or spherical surfaces.

Thanks for the reply!  I figured it was something like that.  ALIGN is gone... so you must mean COINCIDENT...

HAHA, yes coincident...
