Got lags and crashes in large assembly performance? With designs increasing in complexity, so does the number of parts within the assembly. As a result, performance of your CAD tool will suffer.
Assembly performance isn't all settings and simplification. There is a fair bit of higher-level thinking required to keep a large collection of data light on its feet. To practice good planning for your assemblies, a few useful tips and habits can be leveraged.
Practicing Good Habits for CAD Assemblies
In this complimentary white paper, uncover five strategies to improving assembly performance and good habits for modeling and managing CAD assembly of all sizes.
Good performance comes with good planning, but what are things to keep in mind? The CAD assembly tips in this white paper offers input on techniques you can use to continuously practice good habits that can help optimize performance.
What is it?
The term large assembly refers to assemblies with 1,000 to 100,000 parts. Although settings, and configurations are normalities, successful performance is based on practicing habits and techniques that keep the objectives of your work in mind.
Why it matters.
If the amount of assembly parts poses performance issues due hardware or network, chances are you're dealing with large assemblies. Regardless of amount, one of the biggest impacts you can have on assemblies is to simplify them accordingly.
What will I learn?
In this complimentary white paper, you'll learn five techniques you can use today to improve performance. Keep in mind that there is no single solution to tackle this challenge, but leveraging these 5 tips with your CAD solution can be the key to better assembly management.
There are several ways to simplify, but a few to note are eliminating unnecessary details, simplifying subsystems for in-context design, and aligning details and assembly structure levels.
Configuring your display enables you to work with less visual clutter. It also reduces the need to rely on your computer's graphics card. This section discusses the importance of zones, display configurations, and upper-level assemblies.
Some things that are done in the assembly take up more computational resources than others. Because of this, tools like synchronous modeling are recommended for better performing assemblies.
Strengthening Product Data Management
At times, performance issues come from referencing files stored across a distributed network. To avoid network-related issues, managing product data within one single environment can result in substantial performance gains.
Reducing Details in Drawings
Although detail is great, an excessive amount can create costly problems. Drawings are essential to large assemblies. However, multiple views and excessive details can cause performance losses as a result.
