Description

The Assembly Move.svg Move part command provides a tool to move a part within an assembly context.
It consists of 3 rings to rotate the part and 6 handles (crossed double arrows) to move the part without rotation.
The rings and handles are positioned and oriented according to the selected object's implicit coordinate system (ICS).

Usage

  1. Select either a face, an edge, or a vertex of the 3D part or the whole part in the assembly tree.
  2. Activate the Assembly Move.svg Move part command using one of the following:
    • The Assembly Move.svg Move part button.
    • The Assembly3 → Assembly Move.svg Move part menu option.
    • The keyboard shortcut: A then M.
  3. Drag the rings and handles to reposition the part.
  4. Press Esc to fix the position and leave the tool.

Notes

The handles move the part parallel to one of the basic planes of the selected object's ICS; pressing and holding shift while dragging limits the movement to one axis.
