Drawing

Hi I'm a new user of OpenCASCADE - does this software support turning a 2d or 3d model into an engineering "drawing" that can be sent to a tooling builder in a form such as PDF?

Hi Jeff,

there is no out-of-the-box functionality to generate/inherit drawings based on 2d/3d models. However, you can use the available library functions to create cross-sections or views, measure them and place dimensions where needed. There is also a functionality allowing to export PDF files. Well, OCC is a library not a CAD system so you'll have to do some programming to achieve your goals.
