NX includes high-end tools to automate and streamline engineering drawing production.

Drawings are associative to models, so model changes automatically update and are reflected in related drawings. Drafting capabilities include dimensioning, symbols, tabular notes, sheet layout and placement of standard orthographic and auxiliary views, automatic view creation from the 3D model, hidden line processing and automatic parts list generation.

Templates that include drawing borders and view layouts can be dragged and dropped into models to automate much of the work associated with manually created drawings. Drafting tools can be configured to comply with the drawing standard selected by the user – ANSI, ISO, JIS, DIN, GB and ESKD.
