I've been using FC for a number of years, to the point that using the Part Design or Part workbenches is pretty much a reflex action. I mostly use Part Design WB because I guess I think more like it does. But, using Part WB is ok when I need to. (Still have to really concentrate to get a line in 3d space for a sweep path...and I've been doing 3D stuff for 40 years or more.
My question here is what thoughts others have about, when coaching new users, what is the thought process to select using one or the other for a particular design.
I realize there are a lot of factors, level of users experience, required functionality only available in one or the other, etc.
Is there a rule of thumb?
