I've noticed that Creo2 offers far less automatic constraints then my trusted old WF2. Are there any settings I can adjust to get more?
We recently upgraded from Pro/W WildFire 5.0 to Creo Parametric 2.0.
So far I have welcomed that additional constraints that were missing, but dislike that automatic constraint "normal" that interfeers with many constraints and has to be reconstrained to a more conventional constraint.
I can't give you information where you can obtain add on constraints.
Creo is not Inventor where the constraints make sense, and are easier to apply.
I think you're talking about constraints in asm?
'Normal' is indeed an annoying thing. Who wants to be normal...
Do you mean the menu options? A sketch is only going to automatically constrain to the point that it is fully constrained.
Have you tried going into File; Configuration Editor; Sketcher? The sketcher constraints can be turned on and off there.
To clarify I'll add an example. I've drawn to circles of the same size (but that doesn't matter). I want to draw a line Tangent to both. Creo suggests the first Tangent constraint, and it will also suggest the second, but never both together. As I recall WF2 did offer that when you got close enough.
@Tiim Morishita: All constraints are turned on in configuration.
First Tangent but not second:
Second Tangent is suggested but first is lost:
There is an option in the line command which draws a line tangent to two curves or circles.
