Features and commands
Adds annotations along your 2D curves using our smart positioning system. If the curve is too short or there isn't enough space, a leader will be used instead.
Convert (metal sheets) outlines to single lines or arrows.
One or several outline curves(Usually a planar section). The selected curves will be automatically grouped using the user text “PartID”. Conversely, when a curve is picked, the whole group will be selected.
For each curves group, the main curve is kept and outlines or arrow are created. If the option is enabled, annotations will be also created. The result is previewed in real time while using the command, as well as a key table to understand the preview's icons.
