The save_texture_with_model configuration option controls whether images are embedded in models and drawings.
It would be useful for us to have separate options for 3D models and 2D drawings, for example:
save_texture_with_3d - Controls whether images are embedded in 3D models
save_texture_with_2d - Controls whether images are embedded in 2D drawings
The reason for this is that we have 2 different use-cases:
3D Models - Typically textures/decals from a library that are used across many different models
2D Drawings - Typically images that are specific to that particular drawing
We have also had discussions over this here. Adding images to drawings to control parts designed by suppliers or customers is needed. However, without setting the config option we have to use insert object, bmp works best.
We prefer not to save images with models for several reasons; file size and RAM usage, also most images used in models are from design sketches that we would prefer not to share outside our organization.
