If anyone has/had some experience on modeling castings and/or plastic parts, I really would like to know what are the prons and cons of moleling the draft angle, in other words do you include the draft angle in the model? Or it is just shown on the drawing as a note and the solid model is made as being straight surface/cylinder?
I am trying to define the best practice going forward toward the implementation of MBD, so consequently this question came up.
