Drawing files for assembly internal part files?

I was wondering if it is possible to create drawing files from assembly internal part files without having to export them from the assembly as normal part files in solidworks.


This seems like it should be a possiblity considering that the internal part files still have the option to open a drawing file from their menu when right clicked.


Therefore it seems that one might be able to create a new drawing file and use the assembly file containing the internal parts with a new view configuration where all but the one internal part is hidden as the model in the new drawing file.  Then use the open drawing to link the same internal part file in the assembly in is default view configuration to the new drawing file once saved.  So is there any way this process could be simplified such as a way to use a make drawing from part button that would work for these internal parts.
