I'm new to 3D annotations, and I'm interested in it's use cases, best practices, and industry standards. What are you using 3D annotations for in your workflow and why? If you could share/explain some examples with me, that would be awesome!

More specifically my questions would be:

  • Do you use 3D drawings in themselves too, without any 2D views (or vice versa)? If so, why?
  • Do you actually annotate directly in 3D view? If so, why? If not, why?
  • Specifically, what details are best to annotate directly on the 3D view, if anything?
  • If you annotated directly in 3D view, can it be used in 2D views too? And vica versa? If so, how, what’s your workflow?

If you could answer any of these questions it would be helpful.

Thank you in advance!
