I’m currently researching other software packages to replace our solidworks environment.
I’ll spare you the details as to why we want to make the switch and what it is we’re developing, but I’ll will tell you what it is we’re looking for in Rhino.
I know from personal experience that Rhino gives you amazing flexibility with organic shapes and user defined buttons and scripts. I don’t know however Rhino’s capability’s when it comes to making assembly and part drawings. I’ve seen the list of ‘new in Rhino 5’ drafting and this made me curious.
When making assemblies in Solidworks, we give a part no. and description to every individual part so that when we make an assembly drawing we can click the button autoballoon and Solidworks automatically annotates all parts in an assembly. From there we will rearrange the balloons nice and tidy and finish up the BOM.
Is it possible in Rhino to autoballoon all parts in an assembly and have them display certain user defined information?
