I'm making some sheet metal parts with cut outs for different connectors. Below each connector hole I would like to add some silk screen text. I would also like to add the customer logo (ai file) on the sheet metal part.
What is the best way to create this silk screen drawing?
Up to now I have used the decals feature for the .ai logo and sketch+extrude for the text (on part surface). When I generate a pdf of the drawing both the logo and text gets all grainy. Are there any better ways to create silk screen drawings?
We Do what you described and add a note to the view "ARTWORK FOR REFERENCE ONLY". The silk screener should be using the original artwork that you should be supplying them as a separate file, I.E. your AI file.
