Create multiple drawings from one part

I have created a part model in creo 2.0.

 

I need to create two drawings from this part.

 

One drawing with all the features in the model tree. And one more drawing without certain features in the model tree.

 

(i.e) Machining features are at the end of the model tree in the casting model. I need to create two separate drawings (Casting & Machined drawings). Is this possible?

Re: Create multiple drawings from one part

yes you can do that.

if you have advanced assembly license...you can use the insert>merge inheritance option to add machining features.

so you will have two connected parts and then you can make the casting drawing with 1st part and machining drawing with the second part.

the other method is to use family table and suppress the features of machining.

A third method that may be applicable is to use part simplified representations.

Re: Create multiple drawings from one part

You can create a Family Table Instance. One of your instances (or your generic) would have all your features, the other would have the machining features suppressed. The 2 drawings would treat them like 2 different parts but in reality it would be one part. You could even group all your machining features and just pick that group to include in your family table, rather than lots of features.
