The 2D drawings supplied with each part are supporting documents only. They provide information not included in the 3D data, such as material callouts, hardware callouts, finish, colors, revision control, inspection dimensions, etc. The parts cannot be fabricated from the 2D drawings alone because they are not fully dimensioned and detailed. The drawings are a key piece of information, however, uniting the 3D data, 2D drawings, and purchase orders together to ensure the correct data is used when production orders are placed.
