We have both laser profiling and pressbrake capability here and do all of our fabrication in house. My dilema is that while the pressbrake operator only really needs the fold dimensions detailing and while I would like to include, for example, the size and pitch of a series of obrounds, holes details etc,I have the added restriction of the prefered drawing size of A3 so the drawings could end up getting too busy with the possibility of detail being over looked. Our average component size being around 2M long and 250 wide add to that the fact that the business would like to apply for ISO acreditation in the near future.

I was wondering if anyone else hase come up against this and would be willing to advise on how they have overcome this problem
