Using the Drawing Manager

Once you have created your 3D design, you can choose to document it with conventional 2D orthographic drawing views and traditional drafting tools. This kind of documentation is created in Inventor's Drawing Manager environment.

These high-level Drawing Manager tasks are discussed in the following sections:

  • Creating templates and styles
  • Utilizing drawing resources
  • Editing styles and standards
  • Creating drawing views
  • Annotating part drawings
  • Annotating assembly drawings
  • Working with sheet-metal drawings
  • Working with weldment views
  • Working with iParts and iAssembly drawings
  • Sharing your drawings outside your workgroup
