Assembly constraint cleanup

Genius

Hello, Is there a more automated way to cleanup unused assembly constraints, besides investigating each constraint and seeing if it's being used?  I have a decent size assembly that has several parts and arrangements.  I have several constraints that have warnings and would like to get rid of the ones that aren't being used anymore.  Thanks

Have you look at the constraint navigator? It has many options to filter the constraints and see what is happening. Here is one example of of the status filter. The status column can tell you what is going on.

Hi @s_hightower,

No.

As @ScottFelber suggested, use the Constraint Navigator to filter and trace the assembly constraints that are not associated with any component in the assembly.

While removing/deleting the component from the assembly, NX prompts the message whether to delete the constraints associated with the component. When 'Group by Constraints' filter is set, the constraints which are not associated with any component will not show the '+' node sign. So with the OOTB functionality you have to delete those unused assembly constraints manually.
