IV. Constraints in 3D Design

Swivel3D provides four basic constraint tools

2) Next, duplicate it, perform a 180 degrees rotation, move to overlap, and link with ball joint.

3) Now apply limits of 0 degrees < pitch < 90 degrees and lock other two angles (Yaw and Roll)

1. Create extruded object
2. Copy and duplicate subsequent objects
3. Lock subsequent objects to original
