Are 2D drawings still relevant in today's world of 3D, BIM (Building Information Modeling), and rapid prototyping? Even while some industries push toward completely bypassing traditional 2D output (going straight from digital to production), drawings, for many of us, still serve as primary and essential means for communicating design intent. Yet behind every 2D document lurks the possibility of a file that's a digital disaster. You know the type: They look fine when plotted but are a nightmare to actually work with. These documents might pass a visual-based quality-control review, but a plot can hide a multitude of sins. This session will explore the hidden DNA of documents that can affect productivity, profit, and even employee morale. We'll brainstorm digital best practices to ensure that your plotted documents (paper or digital) are more than just pretty drawings. We'll also dive into tools and techniques to help identify, prevent, and remedy digital dilemmas in your company.
