Are many people using the 3D constraint system? Do you have any tips on how to efficiently constrain a model? I'm attaching what I thought was a simple use case, my goal was to create a component for a bookcase system we build that I can drop in any drawing and easily export the resulting 3D parts into our CAM for CNC machining. This is attempt 3 or 4 trying to create a working component.
So far it seems like dimensional constraints solve better than coincident constraints and whenever possible instead of constraining to geometry constrain to world coordinates. Also nesting components is faster than drawing everything in a single file, if I need 5 holes create a component with 5 holes and place it instead of creating 5 holes on the geometry in my component.
The component attached is very... crashy (is that a word?) It worked okay at home on my linux laptop but on the faster windows machine at work I have issues.
Is it possible to achieve what I'm trying to do or am I crazy?
