Creation of 'drawing view' using draft entities

Hi PRO-E USERS, When i was refering a drawing file i found that the draft entities (say a laptop front view ) were created as a drawing view.It is not having any models.It is having a boundary and if u double click on it, is showing a usual "drawing view" dialog box, where you can actually change the 'VIEW TYPE'& 'SCALE' of the draft entitities and, other options('VISIBLE AREA', 'SECTION', 'view display' etc) are disabled. Generally when we convert a view into draft entities the boundary will go off and we will not be able to get the 'DRAWING VIEW' dialog box. KINDLY SUGGEST ME HOW IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE? PLEASE MAKE IT ASAP. THANKS IN ADVANCE.....

Re: Creation of 'drawing view' using draft entities

I am surprised to see this. I am keen interested to know how would it be possible?

Hi AMARNATH,

Could you please share that part if it is not confidential.

Regards,

Re: Creation of 'drawing view' using draft entities

Generally, these things (called '2D Views' or 'Draft Views') are made in an import operation, for example by checking the '2D Views' radio button in the IGES import to drawing options dialog.  To make them directly is a little more cumbersome:  Tools>Applications>Legacy, File>Options>Customize Ribbon>2D View (best found with 'commands not in ribbon') to have a UI control that invokes the command.

They are like regular views in that they have a name+scale, and unlike views in that they have no solid model.  They are generally intended for grouping and scaling a collection of draft entities which represent a view (as might be produced by IGES import, for example).
