In going through the thread on "what makes your blood boil" I started thinking about how do you convey your advanced methods to those who follow you?
For example; I once worked a contract job where I was to design a new semi trailer by modifying an existing model. I spent several days making changes and getting beams just right only to have my dimensions change and nothing fit the way I had designed it. Come to find out the original designer had used a SSP concept but had not created a master sketch that was separate but had involved sketches to features of several different higher level assemblies. It took quite a bit of time digging around to find what he had done and not knowing how he did things,it would have been much faster to have just started from scratch.
I keep seeing great time and effort saving tricks here but I find myself wondering how i am going to convey how this magic happens to then next guy who has to work on this model, especially if I am not here to show him. And I believe a very important part of a robust model should be the ease of use for the next guy in line.
