Strategy: Developing a Featuring Scheme
If your part has more than one feature, develop the large features first. Build all features as simply as possible. Add the smaller details as separate features. This approach provides you with a measure of flexibility that helps you address the following situations:
Creo Simulate is unable to change areas of your design because one of the details artificially limits movement. Provided you originally designed the details as separate features, you can suppress the problem features and rerun the study.
Your part includes features that do not affect solution quality. By suppressing these features, you often can achieve faster run times and smaller file sizes.
