CATIA 3D Master approachWhen deadlines for producing a new part are tight, it’s incredibly frustrating to be held back by delays in the design process. For one thing, having to deal with multiple 2D drawings to describe a single 3D part can be confusing and very time consuming.

When it comes to structural design, 2D drawings can be tricky to work with and can even lead to the production of poor quality parts and errors

Here are three ways the 3D design approach can help to improve your structural design process.

1) Design accuracy

The 2D design approach requires a string of 2D drawings to be created, including a parts list, a solid model and the 2D drawings themselves. When changes are made to the design, collective changes need to be made across these datasets.

It’s at this point that these datasets may fall out of sync with each other which can quite easily lead to the production of incorrect parts. …
