    What I love <3 is I can buildup a layout sketch and basically build all my parts of the this 1 sketch.  In passed systems I have build my layout sketch in my assembly and build parts in context in the assembly which can be a bit time consuming. With the part studio a sketch and 1 extrude can build the basis for all the parts in an assembly.

    Very minimal trim and cleanup required in sketches, eg. if a line extends pass a boundary it does cause the extrude to fall over. Don't waste time cleaning these edges up, as much as they look messy they don't mater.

    You don't have to use as many construction lines or any at all, so it quicker to structure a sketch, once you have mastered the sketcher that is. 

    Quick keys for constricts are a must to learn.
