Capture Fit auto-set

Legend

My ST7 would identify how a part was mated in an assembly, and I didn't have to set capture fit for that part. Where is the setting to turn that on? Now that I'm on ST8, I have to set capture fit, for SE to remember how I located a part.

There is an option you can set in the Assemble Options that will automatically capture them during placement. Maybe you had that set in ST7?

I have yet to find that setting, looking in the assembly settings.

It's not in Solid Edge Options, it's in the Assemble command. Click on the 'Options' button on the Assemble Command Bar:

That button will bring up the dialog I posted above. Some of these options are also available in Solid Edge Options, but not all of them.

 

Hope this helps,
