    "Extract out" engineering drawing from designed part

    Sam S

      Hello, I have solidworks 2012, and had a question.

       

      I have gotten familiar with designing parts using the software, and was thinking that maybe there is a way to make an engineering drawing (based on appropriate standards, of course) with all of the dimensions and projections all done automatically, since the model that I would have created involves all of the dimensions in making them.

       

      I have seen that creating an engineering drawing gives the option of putting them on the drawing sheet, but the actual dimensioning needs to be done manually ("make drawign from part" option).

       

      any help will be appreciated.

      thanks
