Re: Where do you annotate your drawings in C3D?

I'm with everyone else.  Text in the sheet drawing and not the XREF.  Could be Model Space or Paper space.  I won't get into that argument.  Let's save that for another thread (not like there haven't already been a thousand of them).

If you want to do your whole project in one file (not recommended) you would want layer states for each. This would require viewport layer control and annotation layers per discipline (for lack of a better word).

I would suggest at a minimum use xrefs and one file per discipline.
Thank you
