    Save as an AutoCad drg and have it update

    Mark Greenwell

      Hi,

       

      I have a SolidWorks model from which I have created my drawings.

       

      I now also need to save these drawings as an AutoCad drawing.

       

      My question is if I change the model my SolidWorks drawings will update, however will the AutoCad drawings also automatically update as well.

       

      I have just done a quick test and the Cad drawings did not update.

       

      Is there a setting I need to activate or do when I save out as a Cad Drawing.

       

      I am sure that when I was using Inventor there was a link between the model and a Cad drawing, update the model and Cad drawing also updated.

       

      Thanks
