We do a lot of sheet metal parts with screened text on them. I have tried numerous things to decrease the ridiculous rebuild times. What are your suggestions and how does everyone else do text on panels and parts?


I'm down to the point where I put all text and screened geometry in one sketch. I don't extrude it until I'm done adjusting. I've tried dividing it up into several sketches and it just takes longer. I've tried using CUT instead of EXTRUDE with no noticeable difference. I've tried MERGE and NOT MERGED with no increased results.


I don't have a screamin' fast machine, but it isn't a slouch either. How do you all work with text?
