For many designers, being able to change and modify a concept design to evaluate new ideas is technically challenging. It can be a frustrating process, particularly when you’re working on a complex assembly, with many interdependencies.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. By using Creo Design Exploration Extension (DEX), users can now simplify this process, with a tool that has been created for this specific role. As a result, the process of changing, and evaluating multiple design concepts becomes quicker and easier.
If you’re still using a process, that relies on making manual backups of models to ad-hoc folders, repeatedly closing and cleaning session and having to revisiting and reviewing each iteration to make a final decision, then it could be time to make a change.
