Workflow Basics

  • In CAD, very easy to make something quick, that ends up becoming a pain later...
  • While for complicated parts it may be unlikely that someone else will be reproducing the part in the future, that person could be you if something goes wrong later...
  • All the time when working on teams, plans change and parts need to be redrawn. Be awesome if it was just a couple of clicks to change rather than days redrawing.


  • Closed entities!
  • Clear configuration of offsets / Common Baseline
  • Constraints are your best friends. But if you abuse them, things explode.


  • Configure entities that change based on a value
