Drawings Overview

You can create 2D drawings of the 3D solid parts and assemblies you design. Parts, assemblies, and drawings are linked documents; any changes that you make to the part or assembly change the drawing document.

Generally, a drawing consists of several views generated from the model. Views can also be created from existing views. For example, a section view is created from an existing drawing view.

Topics about drawings include:

Dimensions, notes, datums, geometric tolerances, and other annotations are discussed in Detailing.
