If a design exceeds a certain size, it is not possible anymore to handle the design in a single drawing. You will have to split up the design in sections, which are drafted and punched separately.
In most cases these sections cannot be designed and punched individually. You need the details of a neighboring section to see what is already designed or punched in order to realize the proper connections between the sections.
Now it is possible to insert a previously designed or punched drawing as external reference to enable you to continue the design or punch in another drawing. The actual drawing will contain only a reference to the external drawing, so it will not consume space.
This allows you to build a master drawing using component drawings. Any changes you make to a component drawing is reflected in the master drawing.
External references are just the highlight of this software release. Click here to see a complete description of all features of ProArt & ProLace Version 5.1.
