I think you would be really useful to have an interface that attaches text to balloons. Something like the image below where you can attach it to any side.
It would be nice if you double click the balloon and attach whatever you need. It would also never lose the link to the balloon.
It would be great to have function to get scale from base view in title block automatically (competing prodcts have this function)
I know it can be achieved through Ilogic, but it gives unnecessary complexity to a workflow, and it is time consuming if users uses more then a few sheets per drawing.
The idea is that the part files have a definition and an instance. The part can change within the boundaries set up in the definition - just like dynamic blocks.
This would be easier to work with than iParts - because you wouldn't have so many part files on disk to manage.
It would alos be a lot easier to create assemblies around layout parts (iCopy is a bit of a cludge).
I suggest that some features are given the possibility to shine trough to the nearest parent. I can best illustrate this with an example:
A window (part or assembly) is placed in an assembly containing a wall.
the window part contains an extrude (subtract) feature, matching the opening nescecary to fit the window in the wall.
in the dialog box for the feature is, added a few checkboxes:
1.Feature only affect this part/assembly (default)
2.Feature also affect nearest parent
3.Feature only affect nearest parent
Additional option for choise 2 and 3:
Feature migrates to affected children in parent.
In the example above: this would mean, that if checkbox 1 was choosen the extrude feature would cut the window.
If checkbox 2 was choosen the extrude feature would cut the window and the wall.
If checkbox 3 was choosen the extrude feature would only affect the wall.
and if the final checkbox was choosen the wall would even have the opening for the window at partlevel.
This function would be most welcome.
Patch command, in order to make more complex patches can be improved.
Patching process only;
1 - patched where you can select the edge lines,
2 - Weight Factors adjust,
options open is not enough.
The patch process, the patch can commit to use the options in the guide lines of the road, should be added to the command options.
I'm using a large resolution 1920 x 1080. I like to use the minimalistic iconset, but they are really pretty small, especially with a large resolution. The bigger icons without text should be perfect, but arranged in two rows?!?
Please put them together.
To properly and explicitly define datum point locations (for QA, measurement, manufacturing) on inspection drawings, I need to be able to control the following datum target characteristics...
