Having downloaded and installed STACAD weld leader tool App. It didn't seem to be working, while trying to annotate welds on a 2D view in a layout. Then I spotted the weld annotations were appearing in model space (model tab). I probably incorrectly assumed when working in a layout tab everything I add (views dims etc) would be automatically in paper space, but looking at the documentation I see there is MSPACE and PSPACE commands. I didn't see anything on the model tab other than the 3D, to suggest I am working in model space when adding to the layout.
The way I am trying to work is mostly bottom up design of 3D models of components and assemblies in model space (model tab), And, 2D engineering drawings, on the layout tabs as required to describe the specification. But now I am wondering if all my 2D views on the layouts are in model space or paper space and should I be using the PSAPCE command after switching to a layout before adding views to get the result I want?
I see there is a CHSPACE command, if I have been adding all my 2D in model space and should switch them to paper space using this command?
Not going to be near my CAD workstation until tonight to experiment, but some advice form anyone working in the engineering domain on how to use model space / layout / paper space to produce engineering drawings from 3D models would be appreciated.
