Re: Ballooning a Print (Drawing) - A correct way to do a "bubble" print for a PPAP

I have never seen a "How to number a print for dummies" book (although it would not surprise me that some yahoo with too much time might have actually written one ).

I guess I come close to being that yahoo. Although I didn't write a book, the attached procedure does do quite an anal-retentive stab at it. The basic approach I use is to make it easy for engineering to read an inspection report even if they don't have a copy of the ballooned prints in front of them.

1. Balloon numbers are based on part features (not dimensions). ie: a hole with a diameter, position, form tolerance gets a single balloon number which results in all dimensions related to the feature appear together on the report.

2. Views, sections, and details are numbered in order (numerical or alphabetical). Reports print out in a logical order.

3. Numbering in each view, section, or detail always starts at 6:00 o'clock making it possible to use an un-ballooned print if necessary.

Tabor gave me a Dynamic stamp for PDF's some time back (the old cove) I still use it and it works very well, one for numbers up to 99 and one for 100 and over so it is just a PDF stamp to use. if anybody interested please let me know.
