By using Part Design and Generative Shape Design we have been able to reproduce all the required components that make up the full structural integrity and safety of a car carrier trailer in a parametric manner, which means that any late design changes or particular customer requested customisations are now very easy to be integrated.
Taking advantage of the Drafting App capabilities, we have been able to produce detailed 2D drawings of the main subassemblies with all the manufacturing specifications and required notes for production. The 2D drawings are linked to the main 3D model, which means that any late design changes will only need an update of the affected views to see the changes in the 2D drawings.
Lastly, revision and version management control is a highly important feature of the control of every design. By using the Lifecycle Collaborative Management App, we have been able to control the revision number of a part in order to capture their different types so that if needed, they can be used in the future. Similarly, we created branches, revisions and duplicates of the main model for different customers, so that whenever there is a new design for a new customer there is already a solid base to start the design from rather than starting from scratch.
