For this blog post I put together a video showing some of the differences between how you handle changes to the design intent in both SW and SE. It turns out that SolidWorks is very clumsy and not very sophisticated when it comes to making changes to the design intent itself. Changes within the design intent you have established are quick in SW, but when changes happen that you didn’t anticipate, you can be forced to “hack” the model in rather inelegant ways. This is the beauty of Synchronous Technology, because you can decide what the design intent is as you need it. Until then you just have geometry.
This starts to incorporate some of the things I learned from Ilya’s demo, which you’ll see in its entirety as soon as I get the rest of these blog posts up. His demo will be slightly different from mine. I’ll just be demonstrating small portions of it as I go through some more design intent posts.
