How many of you use shaded views on drawings?
Does it provide an advantage over traditional drawing views in your experience?
Maybe I am just an oldie...but I see no added valueor clarity when describing a part on a drawing when shaded. If anything, I find it distracting. Granted I see potential value in creating technical instructional views and literature and assembly instructions for use on a monitor on the line. Otherwise....uh...don't know.
We use shaded views to specify different finish/texture requirements on our molded parts. The clarity helps overcome any language differences.
We are finding that there is a not-so-obvious benefit of using shaded views on drawings.
It seems that the old saw of using wireframe display mode to increase HLR performance of large assembly drawings is obsolete.
Use the "Follow Environment" setting, and keep your display mode set to "Shaded" and you'll see what I mean!
Anyone else discover this is true?
