Matrix Drawings


New member
My company is contemplating the use of matrix drawings for all of our standard fasteners instead of creating individual drawings. If anyone has been down this road, I would be interested in hear any success of horror stories.
I assume you are using Family Tables and Letter/Symbol Dims?

They work great!

You must just make sure that Pro/INTRALINK can handle the dependencies and also have some way to track multiple P/Ns on the same drawing (parameters can usually solve this).

I am not sure how a PDM system would handle this - meaning understanding what is there and how it is related to other designs. We work with multiple PDM Systems, they all have their little workarounds for these kinds of drawings.

Good Luck!
