Let us imagine a design objective: Improve the pressure angle between a cam and a cam-follower roller.
Without a Design-Set you must:
|1.||Edit a Part...edit a dimension...close the Part-Editor... |
|2.||Review the design objective - has it improved?|
|3.||Edit a FB...edit a parameter...close the FB dialog-box...|
|4.||Review the design objective - has it improved?|
Repeat 1 to 4 again, and again, and again, ...
With a Design-Set you can:
|1.||Add to the Design-Set all of those dimensions and parameters that you believe can improve or influence the design objective. |
|2.||Edit, within one Design-Set dialog-box, the dimensions and parameters|
|3.||Watch the design objective continuously change (in a Graph FB) at the same time as you edit the dimensions and parameters in the one Design-Set dialog-box|
The Power of a Design-Set:
|1.||The effect on a design objective as you edit dimensions and parameters is immediate, and... |
|2.||... the sensitivity of the design objective to each dimension and parameter is much easier to understand|
|3.||... it is very convenient.|
It is much easier for you, and others who may need to edit the model in the future.
