What is the difference between Defeature and Simplify tool? Is it control part/assembly rebuild time in large assembly?
I assembled some info on this a while back. Pasted it in below for what its worth:
•Find and suppress features based on their relative size
•Option to ignore features used in mates
•Can create derived configurations
•May cause mate failures if simplified config is substituted in assemblies
•Not good with imported parts where there are no features – only bodies
•Intended for simulation studies
•Find and delete bodies or components - internal and based on relative size
•Creates new model
•Good way to create less-detailed part from complex imported parts
