I am a software engineer, trying to understand the different ways to structure a model, based on my programming experience breaking down code into "modules", "functions" or "classes". The conceptual similarities are obvious. I don't even design myself, I work with other people, professional 3D designers.
Let's say that the target is a refrigerator. We have the larger box, without any accessories. That is Westinghouse.sldasm.
Then, we add a number of parts:
The SLDASM file simply refers to (mentions) the multiple SLDPRT files.
Possibility No. 2. This would be preferred when the main section is not clear. Let's say it is a car. Is it possible to have a very small file, like Toyota-Camry.sldasm with is simply a container of parts?
If you feel generous, my next question will be: "How do I do that?"
