The need for more agility in design and in the development process as a whole requires a different modeling approach. Learn how you can easily incorporate design changes, get more value from your models, and reuse your existing design data by modeling in parametric 3D.
Designing products in 3D requires no interpretation—so you can spot potential issues early and convey your intent to other stakeholders clearly. And because the model is driven by parameters and connected to downstream deliverables, you can make changes late in the development process with ease and watch while everything updates automatically.
Once you have created your parametric 3D model, it’s time to put it to good use. Countless downstream activities—from product testing to NC programming to product configuration—can all be done faster and more accurately to give your development process an additional boost.
Reuse all your existing design files as the foundation for creating parametric 3D models of new or upgraded products. And continue to use 2D whenever it’s the right tool for the job–associative connections between software disciplines keep all your data in sync regardless of where it was created.
