followed the tutorial on the advanced consumer design (mouse part) -


I am creating a plastic enclosure - however I am curious how much detail should be included in the base part - as opposed to the individuals parts after they have been cut out and inserted into their own part file.


Should the shelling and and openings, grooves, lips be done in the master part? Or should I just keep to the basic overall shape and split planes and then do the shelling, and all other features on each individual part.


What about features that may span multiple parts (like an opening?) should those be done on the master part?
