    I use. Dimensioning is actually easy and you can get exactly what you want with a minium of fuss.

    There's a lotta shit in the drawers in the winnebago. But it goes awfully slow and uses a lot of resources...
    Have you tried the "Autodimension Button"....?....

    Don't.....

    You're right that dimensions will show up depending on the software, but only if you have the native 2d... or something I am unfamiliar with? I was thinking more along the lines of Pro-E/Creo where you could add the datum right onto a solid face. Unless you have a 2d file or some kind of 'marker', I don't know that a stand alone Cam product would be able to 'read' that datum

    Dassult also has their own CAD package, Catia. I have not used it. Suppose to be nice. I work in CREO. I did take classes with IMB CADCAM. Way ahead of AUTOCAD at that time. I haven't used AUTOCAD since the mid-90's. About version 14 is when AUTOCAD was were CADCAM was in the late 80s. I did use a version of CADKEY, called SmartCAD. It was OK.

    The summary is D'Assault have MBD, Siemens have PMI. I don't know if others exist. Both are methods of attaching drawing data directly to the solid model, and having everything self contained in one file. Dimensions, tolerances, notes, GD&T etc. All appears as it would on a 2d print, but in model space.

    This is now TACOM mandated. All of the tier 2 defense stuff I get is this way.
