You can include detailing (dimensions, notes, datums, geometric tolerances, and other annotations) as you create a model. You can create 2D drawings of a model, and then insert the dimensions and annotations from the model into the drawings.
You can set options for various aspects of detailing. The options affect only the active document.
You can insert dimensions, annotations, and reference geometry from a model document (part or assembly) into a drawing.
In the SOLIDWORKS software, you can view markups that are made to drawings in eDrawings.
You can define styles, similar to paragraph styles in word processing documents, for dimensions and various annotations (Notes, Geometric Tolerance Symbols, Surface Finish Symbols, and Weld Symbols). When you use styles with annotations, you can repeat commonly used symbols.
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.
