How do assembly constraints differ from geometric and numeric constraints?

Assembly constraints are very different from geometric and numerical constraints. They are all relevant in the fact that they all are dealing with the constraints placed upon an object. Once past that though they really are not all that similar. Assembly constrains is something that specifies the place or position were two objects meet and the relationship between them. Geometric constraints differ in that they have to deal with constraints of parallel and perpendicular lines. Numeric constraints deal with distance and size of an object; a few examples are length, width, and depth.

Geometric constraints ate constant and numeric constraints are number values.
