Learn how to check for clearance failures between your assembly's components or faces with the Clearance Verification tool. By specifying the minimum acceptable clearance around your components you can pinpoint areas in your assembly that may require extra attention.

In this video blog, you'll see an electrical board design example where the amount of heat given off by the heat sink requires a minimum safe distance from other components in the assembly. Take a deeper look at some of the results options with the Clearance Detection command and learn what you can expect from using this tool.
