SolidWorks has six different types of movement. Freeform: Freeform movement allows you to create smooth curves by using the existing faces of the part as control points. This type of movement is used for organic shapes with no reference geometry to follow. Constrained: Constrained movement uses external references to create a mechanical shape. This allows you to create geometry that would not be possible with freeform motion alone. Polar coordinate: Polar coordinate motion can be used when you need your design to follow specific coordinates on the design plane, but still have some freedom on how it is created. Cartesian coordinate: Cartesian coordinate motion allows you to specify a particular point on your design plane and will move everything around it according to its position in space relative to that point, **** Rotation Solidworks has different types of rotations available to the user. It is important for the user to understand what each rotation is best suited for. I have put together a table with all the different rotations and their functions, so that it is easy for you to pick which one you need. -Rotation types- 1. Free Rotation: This rotation toolbox allows the user to rotate any part in 3D space without restricting its movement or size. The free rotation can be done at a fast speed, but it does not allow the use of other tools. 2. Free Rotation with Snap Distance: This allows users to rotate parts or even entire assemblies using free rotation, but also use snap distance - another Solidworks toolbox - to make sure this.

Solidworks is a CAD software that allows users to create 3D models and drawings, and in this tutorial we will show you how to move a component in 3D space in Solidworks. To move a component in Solidworks, all you need to do is select it and then click the Move button in the toolbar. You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move the selected component.

In the FeatureManager design tree, drag the component you want to move. You can Ctrl + drag to move multiple components at the same time. As you move over other components, the pointer changes to indicate what will happen if you drop the component there.
