Automate 3D model to 2D drawing process.

Automate 3D model to 2D drawing process.

I want to automate the steps required to convert the 3D solid model to 2D drawings. Can you tell me how can I automate the PTC creo to reduce the steps? Is it possible to link our written C++ script to PTC creo for automation?

Templates can place views on a drawing when it is created.

Usually that is only good for simple parts with 3 primary views.

How does an automation program know what section views to place on which sheet?

How does the program know which dimensions are needed in each view.

What does your C++ program do already?

Yes, you are right templates gives me the basic views only.

But I want only that basic views and trigger the show model annotation for basic dimensions, remaining section views and additional dimensioning will add by the team.

For more than 500 parts I need to repeat those steps this will give some relief and additional section views and dimensions they will add.

Only these basic steps and saving operation loop for all parts once possible or not, please let me know.

I am attaching a basic flowchart of operation that I want to automate.

Please reply how I can attach my c++ file to PTC for automation

Did you get solution for this? If yes please let me know
