Current Topic:
Experiences in Eliminating fully detailed Engineering Drawings
Dave,

I job shopped for SuperMac a few years ago on a project that they were doing for Apple and my experiences were similar to samurigirl's. A critical-to-function drawing existed for each part and the design office created that document. Apple went a little further and required their tool maker to use the same software as they used. That way, translation errors were all but eliminated. No IGES, no DXF, no ACIS, nada. Tapes went from one place to another and that was it, except for the CTF drawings. If the vendor needed to make drawings, then that was done on their dime.
