After creating parts and assembling them, you need to generate their drawing views. A 2D drawing

is the life line of all the manufacturing systems because on the shop floor or tool room, a machinist mostly

needs the 2D drawings for manufacturing.

This drawing standard establishes the conventions to be adhered to by engineering and drafting staff

and students in the preparation, revision, and completion of engineering drawings. This manual sets forth the

minimum requirements acceptable for the preparation of engineering drawings in RMIT University.

Below are the A3 and A4 drawings formats available in CATIA V5. These drawing templates will

be translated into compatible formats and then loaded into CATIA default drawing files, for use in the

relative environments.

Assembly Drawing:

An assembly drawing is needed for all products that have more than one part. These drawings list all

parts and sub-assemblies that make the final product. Each component is given item numbers and a BOM

(Bill of Materials) on the drawing is created, listed each part number, part name, and part quantity.

Some of these drawings provide instructions on how to assemble the product at a manufacturing.

Instructions may include information such as how to fasten parts together, or what types of lubricant to use.

Part/Detail Drawing:

A detail drawing is the most important drawing in your fabrication work. A detail drawing gives all

the dimensions, fabrication methods and types of materials required to manufacture the part.

When there is more than one component on a detail drawing the individual components are given item or

part numbers ie Item 1, Item 2 etc. A BOM on the drawing is also necessary to specify


The title block displays all the necessary and sufficient information for the exploitation of the

document in the SAMME Engineering workshop.

The information required shall be as specified or referenced by items 1 through 12, below.

1) TITLE: The title should be as brief as possible but should contain sufficient information to categorize the

part properly and to distinguish it from other similar parts.

2) DRAWING NUMBER: Each drawing for detail part, assembly, etc., shall be identified by a number.

Start with the initials of the title followed by a dash, then add a P or a A (P and A stand for Part Drawing and

Assembly Drawing respectively) and the revision number (001, 002, etc.)
