|In the 2D Layout for 3D Design workbench, administrators
can manage and customize standards (international or company standards), in
the Standards Editor. It lets administrators set the standards used for
elements such as dress-up, dimensions, annotations as well as set the
styles that will be used as defaults for element properties in the 2D
Layout for 3D Design workbench.
A number of standards are provided with the application (in .xml files):
- Some are specifically intended for Drafting, such as JIS, ISO and
- Some are specifically intended for 2D Layout for 3D Design (as well
as for the Functional Tolerancing and Annotation workbench), based on the
Drafting standards: these specific standards are suffixed with _3D (such
as JIS_3D or ISO_3D). In these specific standards, some properties
such as the colors have been customized for optimized display.
For 2D Layout for 3D Design, we recommend that you customize these
specific xxx_3D standards, or that you create your own standards based on these specific standards.
||Since all standards are either Drafting, or
Drafting-based standards, administration tasks are actually documented
in the Interactive Drafting User's Guide.
As a 2D Layout for 3D Design administrator, an important element you
need to define is the view box, which gathers all the data needed to
fully define the layout of a view set in the 2D window, as well as the
position of each view in the 3D space. For specific information
regarding the view box, refer to
Views Customization (still in the Administration Tasks chapter in
the Interactive Drafting User's Guide).
