With a .par open, select Application button -> New -> “Drawing of Active Model” to create a drawing from the model:
Make sure that “Run Drawing View Creation Wizard” is checked and select “OK”:
Do not place the view yet and in the View Wizard toolbar select “View Wizard – Drawing View Layout”:
Change the “Primary View” to the desired view e.g. “top” and select OK:
In the toolbar select “View Wizard – Saved Settings”:
In the “Saved settings” field enter a name to save this to e.g. “Par Top View”, select Save and then select OK:
Continue changing settings, preferences, etc. like normal. If you wish to save any additional settings, then reselect “View Wizard – Saved Settings” and resave the settings, overwriting the existing saved settings.
Once you have everything configured and saved, then place your Top view.
With a draft file active, select the “Application button” -> Solid Edge Options:
In the Solid Edge Options select “Drawing View Wizard”:
Under the “Part and Sheet Metal Drawing Views” sections, in the “Part -> Saved settings” drop down select the View Wizard saved setting we created previously e.g. “Par Top View”:
Select OK to accept and save the changes.
The next time you create a drawing from the active model with the “Run Drawing View Creation Wizard” enabled, the default view, settings, etc. will be as defined in our saved settings.
You will need to repeat this process for each of the model types i.e. .asm, .psm and update the Solid Edge Options -> Drawing View Wizard appropriately:
The saved settings are saved into your default defined “Template\Reports” folder under “DraftWizard.txt”:
Distribute and share this “DraftWizard.txt” file the same way you share your Solid Edge template files within your organisation.
For more information on the saving and reusing drawing view settings see the following Solid Edge help documentation:
