Drawing Elevation View

Good day everybody


I am new to generating drawings in solidworks.


When drawing vessels in general, an elevation view is required to clearly give the elevation of the nozzles attached to the vessel. When generating drawings from the 3D models, the nozzle orientation is fixed as it is in the model.


Currently, I use different configurations of the same model to create the "flat" view of the vessel. This takes up a lot of time.  I would like to know if solidworks has a function or something that I can use to "flatten" the drawing to a 2D layout?


Thanks in advance!
