Hi Guys,

In an attempt to perfect our modeling as we progress at our company, I was stumped while thinking about this. I'd do a search but I dont know what to search for. I wam looking for ways to better our building and increase the performance of assemblies. By performance I mean load time, save time, etc.


Is it better to have an assy made up of parts with many features or many sketches? Merely for sake of example, to create a Wire (without the routing in SW), some designers like to make about a half dozen sketch segments and individual sweeps to make a cable routed around components. On the other hand I like to design using 1 complex 3d sketch and 1 sweep to get the same effect.

So, is solidworks more "sketch" friendly or "feature" friendly... Does it make sense?
