I am from the camp that the model should have as much of the data as possible, so in File>Properties of my model I create Drawn By, Checked by, Material, etc. for my drawing template to pull from. Working a new place and all that info is placed in File>Properties of the drawing. Other than the fact I am always right (sarcasm) I have no reason that my way is better. Past life we used a PDM tool so maybe it helps with that?
What do the forums creatures do? Thanks in advance.
