I find PTC Creo Parametric as an excellent 3D CAD solution for large, configurable assemblies. Creo Parametric is in its own league with its ability to support top-down design powered with excellent performance.
In my previous blog post I discussed different product configuration approaches and the value to use a product configurator. We at PDSVISION develop our own product configurator, PDS Creo Configurator, as a part of our PDSAPPLICATIONS. PDS Creo Configurator adds to Creo Parametric the automation and integration needed to create robust, intelligent and reusable 3D CAD assemblies and 3D CAD drawings.
