Freeze Design

Two things that make peoples upset with linear modeling, in the parent/child dependency.

  • The first one… There is not real function to freeze a portion of the design why freezing?
  • Second one… Prevent recalculation

Synchronous Technology help overcome this in his first release and things are looking good for the future when understand the whole concept of synchronous.


There is no need to extend on this one many examples exist on the web

Here one…

Synchronous Technology performance

Freeze design.

This get interesting how SEwST can help designers in this field?

If you follow me from the beginning you probably remember when I write about geometric tolerance. One of them  help ground select faces to prevent them to be modify.

User define set.

This one will not help freeze design but could be a in between solution.

So let take a look at this brief video.

  1. Your Freeze Design video is excellent and really shows how Live Rules works better than anyone else has done so far.

    I would call this video something like The Details Of Live Rules Part 1 rather than Freeze Design.

    I’d like to see you do many more videos like this.

    Hi Jon

    Thank you for the comment.

    For this one it was more to show behavior base on demand and dicussion than making Live Rules tour.

    I am aware that many users looking at this kind of stuff before integrating Synchronous Technology in their design process.

    I am working on something at this moment. In the mean time, if you have any request either submit thru comment like this one or use the Request tab at the top.
