Hi folks,


With my company we are building a large assembly/machine/prototype for the first time and the appropriate documentation is the next step to be achieved. Unfortunately, no one in the team knows how to create the mechanical documentation, i.e:

- hierarchy for part numbers

- drawing for all parts (know how to do one, but what about many parts ?)

- large BOMs (how many times do we have the same part for example ?)



I am of course missing many points in my list, and please feel free to add them.


I am willing to create a clean documentation but efficiently, based on you advice/inputs/... I think I might be able to use automatic drawing (carefully of course and review it), API (in which extent I don't know yet).


What are your guesses to lead it efficiently ? How could I use Solidworks in the go way to lead this effort ?


Thanks for you advices,
