What are your 3D Annotation use cases and workflows?



Shapr3D doesn’t have 3D annotation right now, but I would love to know what are you using 3D annotations for in your workflow and why in other software? If you could share/explain some examples with me, that would be awesome!

More specifically my questions would be:

  • Do you use annotated 3D drawings (3D PDF, online 3D viewer)? If so, why? What for?
  • Do you use 3D drawings in themselves too, without any 2D views? If so, why?
  • Do you actually annotate directly in 3D view? If so, why? If not, why?
  • Specifically, what details are best to annotate directly on the 3D view, if anything?
  • If you annotated directly in 3D view, can it be used in 2D views too? And vica versa? If so, how, what’s your workflow?

Thank you in advance! :slightly_smiling_face:

I know some of you already expressed your opinions over here, but now I’m asking the questions, because I want to know:

  • How would a dedicated 3D annotation tool improve your workflows,
  • In which cases would it be the most use-full (collaboration? manufacturing? modelling process?)?

So if you could explain that how do you use 3D annotations in other software via the questions above, it would be helpful for the design of such a feature. :wink:
