A common but inefficient method of creating workshop ready drawings is to create the top view, the front view, a side view and sometimes an isometric view of a 3D model all in the 2D XY plane. Then these 3 or 4 views are placed relative to each other to give the end user a complete idea of what the 3D model is all about.
Experienced draftsmen have confirmed that the isometric view is the one that takes most of the time, whereas the orthographic views only end up adding to the time spent in completing the drawing. A closer look at this method will show you that, in effect, you are drawing a single entity 4 times over, one for each view.
With AutoProject for AutoCAD you can drastically reduce the time spent in creating a workshop ready drawing, while making full use of the AutoCAD 3D functionality. All you have to do is create a 3D drawing of the model you wish to describe and AutoProject for AutoCAD will take care of the rest. With AutoProject for AutoCAD you can create 6 orthographic views and 8 isometric views within no time.
AutoProject for AutoCAD is very easy to use as it adds several commands to AutoCAD. You simply type a command at the AutoCAD command prompt, select the entities you wish to project and the job is done.
