Saving an assembly with associated part drawings

Is it possible to save an assembly of parts with the 2d drawings of each part and of the assembly in a single file for sharing outside of my organization? The drawings need to maintain associativity obviously. We use model manager inside of organization so this hasn't come up before.

An Assembly + one (assembly) drawing can be saved as Bundle (.BDL) File out of Modeling/Annotation,

but there is no OOTB solution for an assembly together with multiple drawings.

I make a top level assembly into which everything reports.  Then I let that assembly be the owner for my (1) drawing.  When I want a 2d drawing of a sub-assembly or component, I create a sheet, then modify the contents to only include that sub-assembly or component.  This way your bundle file has only one "drawing", but each sheet represents the 2D for the details of a sub-assembly or component.  Save the whole thing as a bundle file.  It's a bit tedious as a work-around, but it keeps everything together in a single file.

Hello Daniel,

put the assembly and the 2d drawings who belongs to it in a .zip so you have one file .

Best regards and have nice weekend

Thanks for all of the replies. The assembly in question has hundreds of parts with hundreds of drawings so the workarounds mentioned would just take too much extra work.
