Hi All


I am new to the forum, but not new to SW.


I am wondering if there is any way to save huge amounts of time when making Drawings.

I do alot of Weldements and thus have many cutlist items per part(I model frames from tube section in a single part)

The first page of my drawing is a isometric view with cut list and Auto baloon(up to 100 items)


Now I have to detail each cutlist item individually, on 100 items 1 by 1 selecting the body and adding a relative view and corresponding baloon takes a really long time.


Does anyone know of a way to insert the cutlist items automatically as seperate drawing views on to a seperate sheet or multiple on single sheet.......hahaha.

Each part already has a baloon number/Cutlist Item number, is there no way to use that to place that item into a drawing view(faster than the process of selecting a relative view for each body)


Thanks Peter
