seed files for documentation

i know this may sound like a stupid question but I've noticed that the company I'm working for at the moment has all their documentation
pointing to 3D seed files...even schematics.

i would have thought that a 2D seed file would be the best practise, for normal documentation
i.e. (schematics , wiring diagrams , single lines etc) but what I'm essentially asking is
is this likely to cause any significant issues ?

If so , is there an easy way to convert the documentation back to 2D ,  or is it a case of change it
now and future docs should be correct.

i think we may have avoided any issues up to now, but it would be good to know what best practise is
so i can suggest a change going forward if that is deemed to be correct practise.

many thanks

  • Hi Jason,

    As a Best Practice it good to use 2D Seed files for creating Schematic, Wiring and Single line symbols.

    For the symbols that have been created using the 3D Seed file they can be modified again to use 2D Seed file. You can follow the below steps for the same .

    1. Open Manage >> Create Symbol.




    2. click on "Modify Existing Symbol" and select the symbol that needs to b e modified with the Seed file >> select the 2D Seed File >> Check the option "Apply the Seed file when modifying the symbol" >> Next.




    3. Click Next until the Step 8 to save the symbol and Finish.



    Hope this resolves the issue you are facing.
