Overriding saved constraints

Hello everyone!

 

When inserting a component while using the "By Constraints" positioning, NX forces to use saved constraints when they are present. Is it possible to override saved constraints and position component using the mode similar to one when no saved constrants are present in the component?

Good question, I am interested too. We store the most used contraints for bolts and other reusable parts but sometimes we prefer to constrain them in a different way.

You can choose to position the component using Select Origin and then use Other constraints once it is added to the assembly.

Of course we can and it is inconvenient, hence the question.
