Any tips on the approach to designing, which will make it friendly to make modifications to dimensions later on down the line?
I've had a small amount of experience using equations, and have found it to cause more complications than convenience.
Basically our assemblies consist of a frame, an enclosure and all the inner workings. The problem is spending so much time to resize all of the small inner workings, matching the holes, checking for interference. Also, a lot of times I would change 1 feature, then get errors from other features, so I fix those then some error from another feature down the tree. Just basically trickling down effect for each part that I would have to modify in order to get to the right size, consumes a lot of time.
I'd like to get an idea of how others design to make changes as friendly as possible.
