Assembly constraints

I have been assembling a large amount of parts and subassemblies lately and thought it was time to ask this question:

Is there a config option I can set that I can have:

1. Coincident set automatically as the first constraint type?

A. I would select the references

2. Distance set automatically as the second constraint type?

A. I would select the references

3. Distance set automatically as the third constraint type?

A. I would select the references

If not I suppose I could write a mapkey that would achieve this for me....

Thank you for your time and assistance...

By setting the config options per a reply from Stephen Williams2

comp_angle_offset_eps = 91

comp_normal_offset_eps = -1

auto_constr_always_use_offset = never

Assembly works perfect as would expect it to.

I haven't seen any defaults that do this. However, there is a "repeat" functionality that can help.

create_temp_interfaces yes

This is when you assembly the same part over and over.

Is there anything un UDF for this?

Thanks Mike. What exactly do these do differently?

I do not exactly know what they change. I have not had alot of time to investigate.

I put my initial help request into the PTC Community > Creo > Assembly Management > Discussions category but then I got a reply in the PTC Community > Creo > Modeling > Discussions category from Stephen Williams2 with the settings I described above. It worked so I moved on due to a time crunch. If and when I get somtime I can investigate what the three added config options did or perhaps someone else could inform us. Perhaps I do not need all three of them together but I don't know at this time...

Thanks...

Thanks. I found the other thread. Now I understand what Stephen was doing.
