Modifying assembly constraints

I am struggling to modify an existing assembly constraint between two parts in Creo 2.0—by using the Assemble option in the Model dashboard. But how can I modify a constraint once I've created it? I have browsed some online resources on creating constraints, but these seem to mention options that I don't see in my Creo version. Even deleting a constraint seems a mystery to me forcing me to, at this point, simply delete entire parts and start over. I miss SolidWorks :/

No worries... there is nothing trivial in Creo

All the pop-up menus in the video are right mouse clicks.

Re: Modifying assembly constraints

Right mouse button. You are highlighting the constraint for replacement if you want. You can remove the individual constraint and you can delete the pair of constraints. And you can delete the entire constraint set. Delete the entire constraint set if you want a different constraint type. You can have multiple constraint sets.

Re: Modifying assembly constraints

Thank you for the reply Antonius. Can you clarify where in the model I should right-click? If I right-click the constraint node in the model tree view, I can select Info or Repeat, neither of which seem relevant to our case. I tried selecting the constraint node and right-clicking a constraint entity—plane, edge, etc—in the visualization pane, but to no avail. Thank you again for answering what must be a very trivial question

Re: Modifying assembly constraints

Hi,

if you want to modify a constraint of assembled component, then you can:

  1. select the component in Model Tree
  2. press RMB and click Edit Definition command
  3. in Component Placement tab > activate Placement sub-tab
  4. now you can see all constraints and you can change references
