How do you check if your model is fully defined?

is there a way to check if the whole part or assembly is fully constrained. i know the icon changes next to the individual part to a square when a component is fully defined. but what about the assembly as a whole?

 

and also individual parts - how can i know if the sketches are all fully defined without going through the whole list in path finder.

 

in SW you just look in the bottom right corner and it will tell you if its fully defined or under defined

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

for skecthes/profiles juts turn ON an option toshow underconstraint profiles

As long as a profile/skecth is not fully defined You will see a small pencil on the left.

Turned on once You always will see wether or not any geometr is fully defined.

My question would be: "Why?'

 

Why do you need fully constrained parts? I understand that most companies initiated requiremetns for standards th have sketches fully constrained...but those are based on standards of 1990's when sketch logic and capabilities- in some cases- requirements. 

Today, the tools have much more flexible tools and controls over the geometry!
