The standard ‘Out of the box’ Drawing Borders in 3DEXPERIENCE provide a basic solution for adding a frame and title block to a Drawing. The functionality will add a template to the background view and further options are provided to add a revision ladder, assign a checker/designer, as well as resizing and deleting the template. The majority of information on the title block without automated functionality can be edited by accessing the background view.
However, for a larger team having a solution that requires mostly user editing can introduce inconsistencies, e.g. various date formats, revision sequences, units, and part numbers and so on. As a result many of our customers decide to opt for a customized Drawing Border solution. The screenshot below shows a standard ‘Out of the box’ Drawing Border.
To add a standard Drawing Border access the Drafting workbench, go to View Layout and click the Page Layout icon. In the Dress-up section, select a Drawing Titleblock Sample. Now select the Create option and click Apply.
At TECHNIA our development team are able to create custom Drawing Borders for specific customer requirements, this will provide a more enhanced and professional solution. Typically this involves designing a custom title block with behind the scenes functionality to retrieve information from linked 3D data for display on the title block, such as: material and finish details, mass and volume, or part properties (including custom attributes).
Sheet re-sizing and re-numbering is handled automatically and functionality can be included to respect user privileges and/or to add watermarks, switchable logos and icons. All this is presented in a single utility with a user interface that facilitates rapid creation and edition of the title block, drawing frame and revision ladder. See the below example of a customized Drawing Border solution.
