Engineers should design in 3D from the outset of their design process. The ease of use and power of today's 3D modeling software makes that the most practical approach because engineers can design and document at the same time.
Advances in 2D software, such as virtual sketching, allow designers to take their ideas more quickly to digital models that can be shared, so starting with 2D makes the most sense. Extend the design to 3D when the concept is sufficiently advanced to require documentation.
