3D PMI Location best Practices

3D PMI Location best Practices

3D PMI Location best Practices

For a 2D drawing it is highly suggested to use the Master Model approach to create your drawing. For Creating 3D PMI on your model, is it suggested to apply this data directly to the master model? Or is it suggested to make a separate model using the master model approach and apply the 3D PMI to this model?

Does all of this PMI information impact your file size and assembly performance if you apply this data directly to the master model?


RE: 3D PMI Location best Practices

It's always better to have PMI applied to model which is going to called in Assembly.

I have yet to check this in large parts, but PMI increases model size.
