In V8i you can create parametric, feature-based solids, using Feature Modeling tools. Parameters used to create features like chamfer, fillet, hole, etc., are stored in the design and can be edited using the Modify Parametric Solid or Feature tool. You can edit such solids by changing the parameters used to create them or by selecting them and using the handles to make changes interactively. You can manage the features using the Feature Manger tool.
However, feature modeling has certain limitations:
