3D created from scratch
A typical multi-part assembly models w/ Inventor & SolidWorks. *Single-Part 'assembly's' that appear to be multi-part models are sketch controlled & editable and not made singular by converting or shrink-wrapping. This method yields exportable models with textures as intended, 90% of the time. I use (Inventor, SolidWorks, Revit) content library for pipe & fittings and create custom families & BIM models. Spec sheets please; correct data is key.

Regarding single part assy's, as I'm still in R&D & bench marking, I'm not yet sure if this method is CAD-time efficient but it maintains mat'l appearances well for RFA, ADSK, STP conversions and the file size is similar to a typical, multi part assembly. Moreover, the models' parametrics are not there and all charismatics are controlled by the sketch. Handing the file off to another for editing would be cruel as the procedure is basically extrude & cut somewhat methodically, but precisely, until the desired results are achieved.
