After modeling a part in Onshape, the next step of taking the part to production is the drawing phase. In this course, Onshape Drawing Fundamentals, you'll learn the fundamentals necessary to create a 2D Onshape drawing from a 3D model. First, you'll cover how to create a drawing and how to choose a template. Next, you'll explore adding views and organizing the layout of the drawing. Then, you'll explore dimensioning and annotating. Finally, you'll learn how to populate the title block, exporting, and sharing the drawing. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create complete production drawings of your own, to accompany your Onshape geometry. Software required: Onshape.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Charles Macdonald, and welcome to my course, Onshape Drawing Fundamentals. I'm a principal engineer at racecar manufacturer Riley Technologies, and also have my own design studio at spryevo. com. I've been using computer-aided design software as a mechanical engineer for almost 20 years, and Onshape has a new CAD package that will revolutionize our industry. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with your Onshape account and how to create some 3D models. In this course, we are going to cover the fundamentals necessary to create a 2D Onshape drawing from a 3D model. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, creating a drawing and choosing a template, adding views and organizing the layout of the drawing, dimensioning and annotating, and populating the title block, exporting and sharing the drawing. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create complete production drawings of your own to accompany your Onshape geometry. You'll be able to share it with a format like PDF or through Onshape itself. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Onshape with the Onshape Drawing Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
