Which views can Drew place on a drawing?

You are here:

When you create a new drawing, you can automatically add a 3D view and one or more 2D views. Even a scaled flat pattern view with outer dimensions if you want to.

View settings

You can capture many of your view preferences in Blueprints:

  • Which projected views are added, besides the default main view
  • The 3D view orientation, view display mode, sheet corner and whether to add a 3D view to normal sheets or body sheets.
  • Whether to add a scaled flat pattern view, even including outer dimensions

AutoFit will determine the best sheet scale and the position for each of the views.

Normal sheets vs body sheets

Drew can create a sheet with views, blocks and outer dimensions for each unique body. We call these body sheets.

In the screenshot above, there is a column for normal sheet settings and a column for body sheet settings.

Flat pattern view settings

The settings window has a special tab for flat pattern views. You can read more about it here.
