Master Modeling in Action: Your Guide to Streamlining Your Next CAD Project

Late changes, no matter how small, can derail product development. Learn how top-down design mitigates these risks and grants better control of the process.

If you’ve ever built a complex model for a new product from the ground up, you know what it’s like to be asked to change a component in late-stage development. That seemingly simple request for a “small tweak” from a client or stakeholder could have a domino effect that requires you to update half of the design features you’ve put together. 

That’s why top-down design — aka master modeling — is so powerful. When used correctly, master modeling allows a product development team to maintain a single place to define and control all of the component interdependencies within a design.  

And because of that, master modeling allows you to make changes to connected design elements throughout your model much more quickly.  

Access our detailed guide to discover exactly how master modeling could streamline your next CAD project.
