Add a sheet for every (weldment) body
One of Drew’s coolest features is the ability to add body sheets.
A sheet for every unique body
Just click the Add body sheets button in the Drew toolbar when you are creating a drawing:
Drew finds your part model, looks for the cut list, then finds all bodies. Drew then adds a sheet for every unique body.
This can take a while for complex weldments, so please be patient. It might look like SOLIDWORKS is unresponsive, but usually, it is just very busy.

Which items are added to a body sheet?
Every body sheet consists of:
- The default Sheet Size from the Blueprint
- A 3D view (optional)
- One or more 2D views
- A scaled flat pattern view for sheet metal bodies (optional)
- Blocks or notes (optional)
- A balloon (optional)
- Outer dimensions (optional)
You can change all of these settings in the Blueprint using the Settings window.
