After reviewing the 2014 Training manual content and getting hands on with the new enhancements I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite features.
Toggling Between Flexible and Rigid States
While in 2013 and previous releases we had to go into Component properties to change the way a subassembly was being solved or even select an alternative configuration - in 2014 we now have the ability to do this within the Feature Manager design tree.
We can select the subassembly and you'll now notice a new icon in the menu by toggling this icon.
Even for parts we can click the component and we will now also see a drop down list allowing us to change the configuration.
Another command I also found useful which isn't a new feature is the ability to flip mate alignment - via a RMB we can switch the alignment of the selection normal to the faces of our geometry.
