Blue Mech
Automatically Creates 2D Drawings for Sheet metals

General Usage Instructions

SMDC allows users to choose between a standard drawing template or a specified one from the settings. This customizable feature saves time and ensures that users can generate drawings that meet their specific needs and preferences.
SMDC automatically generates four standard drawing views of the main Assembly: Front, Top, Side, and ISO view.
– If a sheet metal part has a flat pattern, SMDC adds an extra flat pattern view to the drawing sheet. This feature ensures that users have all the necessary views for their sheet metal designs, making the drawing creation process quicker and more efficient.

How it works 

SMDC can be accessed from both Assembly and Part documents in Autodesk® Inventor®.

  • Assembly Document
  • SMDC checks all sheet metal parts within an Assembly in Inventor, streamlining the drawing creation process and saving users time. This feature ensures that all sheet metal parts are included in the drawing generation process.
  1. SMDC exports a . STP file of the main Assembly, allowing for easy sharing of designs.
  2. Exporting the Parts list(Parts Only) of the Main Assembly into an Excel file.
  3. 1St Sheet contains four views of the Assembly – Front, Top, Side, and ISO View.
  4. Adding a Parts list and Balloons, simplifying parts management and making it easy to identify and track all the parts within an Assembly.
  5. For each sheet metal part, you will get a new sheet that contains 4 Standard views and a Flat Pattern view.
  6. You can choose from the Settings whether to Retrieve Dimensions or to Add Overall Dimensions.
