Multi-Body Modelling

Re: Multi-Body Modelling

If Creo included multibody parts they wouldn't be able to charge extra for the "Advanced Assembly" module. I was shown the functionality in SolidWorks and realised that all the skeleton model and copy geometry complexity could be eliminated, along with a £1000 a year to PTC to maintain the Advanced Assemble extension.

Re: Multi-Body Modelling

Multibody in SW and skeleton modeling in Creo are not directly comparable.  Yes, they both are top down design tools, but skeletons with copy & publish geometry features give so much more flexibility.  I'm confident that I win enough business and save enough time to justify the expense of AAX many times over.

I've had projects that I only accepted on the condition that the client allow us to use Creo instead of SW because I didn't think we could meet their aggressive schedule without Creo's skeleton modeling tools.
