    Hi dear experts, could you, please, tell which of the two sentences sounds better:

    1. " The basic methods have been considered for defining of connections between components in CAD/CAM systems."

    2. " " The basic methods for defining of connections between components in CAD/CAM systems have been considered "

    2 sounds much better, but it should say '...for defining (the) connections...'.
