In design, the question often arises as to how you can design so that you do not have any problems later on, even in production. One way is to design structures during construction that later work better in manufacturing. Is this effective? Very often I would say no. Construction and manufacturing should be clearly separated. So how can I derive production-appropriate models from a normal assembly in Creo Parametric without having to use the original construction?
