Allows to define a set of entities or subentities as a rigid body.
Accessing the Command
command bar: dmrigidset3d
menu bar: Parametric | 3D Constraints | Rigid Set
toolbar: 3D Constraints | Rigid Set
ribbon:
- Solid | 3D Constraints | Rigid Set
- Surface | 3D Constraints | Rigid Set
- Assembley | 3D Constraints | Rigid Set
Quad cursor menu: Constraints | Rigid Set
: dmrigidset3d
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select edges, faces, 3D entities or [WOrld/BLock]: (Select entities or subentities or choose an option.)
Entities in set: 1
Select edges, faces, 3D entities or [WOrld/BLock]: (Select more entities or subentities or choose an option, or press Enter.)
Press the TAB key to select obscured geometry.
All members of a rigid set are moved (DmMove command) and rotated (DmRotate command) together, while their relative positions within the rigid set are preserved.

Allows you to select the WCS subentity as an argument; prompts you: Select reference coordinate system subentity [Origin/X axis/Y axis/Z axis/XY plane/YZ plane/ZX plane] - (Select a reference coordinate system subentity as an argument.) |
Block |
Allows you to choose as an argument the subentity of the coordinate system of the block; prompts you: Select block reference - (Select a block reference of which the reference coordinate system will be used as an argument.) Select reference coordinate system subentity [Origin/X axis/Y axis/Z axis/XY plane/YZ plane/ZX plane] - (Select a reference coordinate system subentity as an argument.) |
